OU students named to task force promoting civic engagement on Michigan college campuses
May 12, 2022
Oakland University students Jeremy Johnson and Anna Van Hese are among 25 students selected to serve on the Michigan Department of State’s Collegiate Student Advisory Task Force.
For the next year, they will serve as civic engagement liaisons between the Michigan Secretary of State's office and Oakland University to inform their peers of their voting rights, promote awareness of the newly redistricted electoral maps and combat election misinformation on campus.
They were named to the task force in late April, along with students from 17 other higher education institutions across the state. Prior to being selected, students submitted an application and were interviewed about their ideas on how to increase civic participation among young people on college campuses.
Johnson and Van Hese have worked on a variety of civic engagement efforts on OU’s campus and in their communities.
