Civic and democratic engagement are central to the mission of higher education and the values of the University of Baltimore. While these types of engagement embody a wide variety of activities, participation in local, state, and federal elections is a real and tangible way for our students, staff and faculty to affect our community. The Office of Transitions and Community Engagement is committed to ensuring that the UB community always has access to resources and information to be fully prepared to take part in the democratic process.
"Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education."
-Franklin D. Roosevelt
