A panel of students and faculty presented summaries of Penn's voter engagement initiatives to the Board of Trustees Student Life Committee on Thursday. The panel explored a series of student and university programs increasing voting awareness among both college students and high school students in the city. 

The end goal of voter engagement was to teach students about democracy, said Cory Bowman, the Associate Director of the Netter Center for Community Partnerships. 

There was a 465% increase in on-campus voter turnout in 2018, followed by an approximate 400% increase in the recent elections on Nov. 5, Oh said.
