Explore: Politics

This page is a resource for all learners who are interested in politics. There are numerous ways to explore politics through University of Richmond's programming and community partnerships. If you are interested in learning more about the City of Richmond's local government, consider attending an excursion to a Richmond City Council or School Board meeting. The CCE, in conjunction with departments and student organizations across campus, hosts a series of programming during each election season. Voter registration information is also available through our office.
