Applications now open for Vanderbilt Project on Unity and American Democracy Student Advisory Board; apply by Sept. 27

The Vanderbilt Project on Unity and American Democracy invites undergraduates to apply for its Student Advisory Board. This group will contribute to the Unity Project’s mission of enhancing Americans’ capacity for civic engagement, provide advice on additional programming, and have the opportunity to interact with prominent guests. 

In these tumultuous times for our country, it is important to collaborate across political alignments and cultural experiences to foster unity. To incorporate more effectively Vanderbilt student voices and to continue to develop better programming, the Unity Project is hoping to utilize a small number of undergraduates to help advance its mission.
