Here are a few recent examples of what’s going on at our private nonprofit colleges tied to the election.
MCAD leaves its mark on the election
MCAD’s Design Works has teamed up with the city of Minneapolis to ensure everyone has a smooth experience while casting their ballots on Election Day, thanks to better signage. DesignWorks is an in-house design studio provides students with real-world, hands-on experiences working on projects — in this case for all Minneapolis voters. Read how this came about and the impact it is having in the Council’s October newsletter.
Two recent grads dig into the election
The hard work of running and winning elections is something two recent grads are seeing up close this fall. Rachel Palermo, a St. Olaf grad, is an assistant press secretary for the Democrats in D.C.; Stephen M. H. Change, a Bethel grad, is political director for the GOP in Minnesota’s 8th congressional district. Read about their experiences in the Council’s September newsletter.
Experts delve into election year dynamics
There are many experts on politics teaching at our private colleges. The Council’s August newsletter included excerpts from recent writings by two of them, both professors of political science: Carleton’s Steven Schier and Hamline’s David Schultz.
