Campus Election Workshop
3 hours, FREE
Student governments control funding for student groups, decide which speakers come to campus, and influence administration policies. And too often, student governments are downright hostile to conservatives.
The Campus Election Workshop teaches you how to run for – and win – student government elections.
The workshop equips you with time-tested and innovative campaign techniques to win your campus elections. Students learn how to recruit candidates, build an organization, develop campaign strategies, target voters, and more.
The Campus Election Workshop is held on college campuses across the country upon request. If you are interested in bringing this program to your campus, please fill out the request form.
"The training I received from the Leadership Institute taught me the techniques and the tactics I needed to run a successful campaign for student government. I'd recommend student government LI training to all conservative students who want to be leaders in their student governments."
"Campus Election Workshop is the best way to finalize your plans for your campaign. We owe a huge thanks to the Leadership Institute for training us conservatives to win on an overwhelming liberal campus."
