Melanie Freeze, Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science, was awarded a Project Pericles “Up to Us Voting Modules” mini-grant to incorporate “How to Vote” civic engagement in her fall 2020 ACE course Polarization, Parties, and Power. Students completed voting plans and participated in voting outreach to elementary students and others in the community. The grant will also fund a political psychology class research project during the Spring 2021 term that examines people’s response to public health messaging from Republican and Democrat governors, with a focus on vaccinations.
