The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge empowers colleges and universities to achieve excellence in nonpartisan student democratic engagement.

The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge envisions a more engaged and inclusive democracy. Through institutional engagement, direct student engagement, and fostering a national higher education network, ALL IN strives for an electorate that mirrors our country’s makeup and in which college students are democratically engaged on an ongoing basis, during and between elections, and not just at the polls. We believe that a strong, vibrant, and more representative American democracy will result from the greater inclusion of informed college student voters.

Partner: Civic Nation


Civic Nation leads: Kyle Lierman (Civic Nation CEO), Jen Domagal-Goldman (ALL IN Executive Director) 

FCL lead: Simon Thompson


FCL explored this idea in 2015 by bringing in former TurboVote Director of Partnerships Sam Novey to research what a nationwide recognition program for colleges based on actual voting rates would look like. After an extensive national search for the right partner and program director, Civic Nation emerged as the best fit and Zaneeta Daver was hired as founding program director. ALL IN launched in July 2016 and now has nearly 1,000 participating colleges and universities across all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
