Today is National Voter Registration Day. Across campus, Obies are engaging with the 2020 election. As the campaigns increase in intensity and Election Day looms, the college invites the entire community to mobilize our academic and creative skills to make sense of this historic moment.

Look for a soon-to-be-launched website using this logo, which will offer a clearinghouse for programming up to and beyond November 3, 2020. This non-partisan educational series will explore the histories, issues, and perspectives important to understanding this significant moment.
