What is Political Engagement?
Political engagement means playing an active role in your community (locally, nationally, or internationally) by being involved in the democratic process, participating in public life, and collaborating with community organizations to solve community problems.
The RCCL convenes the Committee for Political Engagement, and also advises student organizations with a political focus, including the College Democrats, the College Republicans, and the Students for Liberty. Other student organizations, including awareness groups, fraternities and sororities, sometimes also plan activities with a political focus, and RCCL is happy to serve as a resource for those organizations, as well.
