2016 College Convention

Make your voice heard

The Democrats have a convention, the Republicans have a convention and now you can have a convention! In September 2016 you can participate with representatives from colleges around the country to discuss the issues that are important to you and prepare a memo asking for your issues to be discussed at the Presidential Debates.

Applications to be a delegate will be available after the start of the year, so sign up now to get a notification. We’ll update this page as more details are available.

2016 College Convention

September 9-11, 2016

The College Convention will provide a forum for focused discussion on national issues, with faculty experts serving as moderators.

The culminating College Convention event will be a 90-minute moderated Town Hall meeting, which will be streamed live with watch gatherings at the delegates’ home campuses across the country.

The final product of the evening will be a memo to the moderators of the Presidential Debates that will outline the key issues the College Delegates want the candidates to address.
