College Attendance and Civic Engagement among 18 to 25 Year Olds. Fact Sheet
Lopez, Mark Hugo; Elrod, Brent A.
Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE), University of Maryland
Previous research on differences in civic engagement between young people with some college experience and those without suggests that college attendance is positively associated with some measures of civic engagement. This Fact Sheet presents new evidence, but largely supporting the findings of other researchers, on the correlation between a wide range of civic engagement measures and college attendance. Compared to their peers who have not attended college, young people who have some college experience show higher levels of civic involvement, electoral participation, and political voice across several measures. (Contains 3 tables, 21 figures, and 9 endnotes.) [This Fact Sheet was produced by CIRCLE (The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement).]
