• Substantially increase the number of college students who are democratically engaged on an ongoing basis, during and between elections, and not just at the polls.

• Make educating for democratic engagement on college campuses an accepted and expected part of the culture and curriculum so that students graduate with the knowledge, skills, behaviors and values needed to be informed and active citizens.
