During National Voter Registration Day on Sept. 19, 2023, Loyola University Maryland President Terrence M. Sawyer, J.D., joined more than 450 college presidents and chancellors in committing to boosting student voter registration and participation in all elections through the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge.

“Loyola’s mission challenges students to understand the ethical dimensions of personal and professional life and to examine their own values, attitudes, and beliefs,” Sawyer said. “We believe that every student has the power to make a difference, and we are committed to providing them with the tools they need to exercise their civic duties.”

Founded in 2012 to support full student voter participation of all eligible students, ALL IN and its Higher Education Presidents Council launched a call to action for higher education presidents and chancellors to fully engage students in electoral participation.

By signing the ALL IN pledge, Loyola has committed to ensuring all eligible students are able to register to vote and cast informed ballots in upcoming elections. In addition, the students committed to fostering campus cultures that support nonpartisan student civic learning, political engagement and student voter participation.

The University previously signed the ALL IN pledge in 2020.
