Empowering Eagles Initiative Gets Results

This fall, UC students have participated in several events created to encourage their registering to vote.

One program, under the direction of Athletic Director Dr. Bren Stevens, has seen particularly impressive results.

The Empowering Eagles Initiative was created to encourage UC student athletes to register to vote, and while all teams had strong success, several UC athletic teams –  baseball, cheerleading, lacrosse, women’s soccer, softball and men’s and women’s tennis – achieved a 100% voter registration rate.
