Congress to Campus

Thousands of students on college campuses throughout the country are getting a rare opportunity to interact with former Members of Congress through a program designed to attract young people to public service leadership. Concerns about the lack of civic literacy among America’s young people and declining participation in politics and voting (even among college-educated young adults) are being addressed by the Congress to Campus program, which brings students into contact with former Members who share their insights and experiences. Students are challenged to become involved in the legislative process and learn about the value of public service from those who have served in Congress. 

This annual event is coordinated in partnership with Stennis Center for Public Service and the Association of Former Members of Congress.
