One of the largest fall events that the American Democracy Project hosts on campus is Constitution Day. This event is held each September to recognize the anniversary of the signing to the United States Constitution. ADP partners with UNK Student Government for this event, and this year "pocket-preambles" were passed out to hundreds of students, despite being moved inside due to rain.

2016 UNK Talks

Our pilot "UNK Talks" event was nationally recognized in the Campus

 Spotlight section of the ADP monthly newsletter and was covered in an article by UNK Communications.  ADP Committee members representing the "First Year" program also received good press coverage as Aaron's winning "Talk" received top honors.

Other Past Highlights from ADP

Thanks to UNK American Democracy Project partners and supporters, a guest speaker wrote an article mentioning UNK in the international Arctic Journal.

The UNK American Democracy Project hosted an Election Information Forum: An Overview of Non-Presidential Ballot Issues & Candidates

Regional Issues Forum Handout

Representatives from the Buffalo County Democratic and Republican Parties gave an overview of the candidates appearing on most central Nebraska ballot tickets. The focus was on regional and state contested ballot items (i.e. not items with only one choice of candidates).  The event informed voters about regional races that have not received as much media attention.
