Deacs Decide Election Engagement

Deacs Decide is a highly collaborative, campus-wide political engagement project. The program aims to raise awareness about issues at stake in elections; educate the campus and Winston-Salem community; register students, faculty, and staff to vote; and address post-election matters.

Deacs Decide offers a variety of opportunities to create relationships across difference, examine issues critical to American elections, build competencies for engaged citizenship, and experience American democracy. Do you want to partner on an event or program? Reach out to Deb Marke or Marianne Magjuka.
