Student Activism, Politics, and Campus Climates in Higher Education
Co-Edited with Demetri Morgan | Routledge Press
The “Student Activism, Politics, and Campus Climate in Higher Education” presents a comprehensive contemporary portrait of political engagement and student activism at postsecondary institutions in the United States. The current national narrative suggests that democratic participation and political engagement are at an all-time low, particularly related to voter turnout and other established and accepted ways of doing politics. In part, this has been attributed to growing ideological polarization in the public sphere as well as the ongoing disenfranchisement from traditional political processes. While often dismissed as apathy, especially in reference to millennial college-goers, contemporary college students participate in various forms of political action and dissent.
