CIRCLE Announces Report on Youth Political Engagement

Next week, CIRCLE (www.civicyouth.org) will release a major report entitled “Millennials Talk Politics: A Study of College Student Political Engagement.” Commissioned by the Charles F. Kettering Foundation, this report is based on 47 focus groups conducted by CIRCLE on 12 college and university campuses in 2006 and 2007. This report is the most detailed current examination of college students’ political and civic attitudes and experiences. The study has compelling implications for higher education, national policymakers, and the news media, among others.

On Nov. 7th, CIRCLE is hosting a presentation by the authors, press conference, and series of panel discussions to be held at the University of California’s Washington Center at 1608 Rhode Island Avenue N.W., in Washington, DC. In the panel discussions CIRCLE will bring together individuals from higher education, the nonprofit sector, and students who participated in the study to discuss the findings and the practical implications of the research. After brief presentations there will be ample time for questions and discussion. The event starts promptly at 10:00am and concludes at 3:00pm. If you would like to attend, RSVP to dwillia8@umd.edu by Wednesday, October 31st, 2007.
