BYU's Kennedy Center hosts Diplomacy Camp July 19-24

The David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies will host the first summer Diplomacy Camp July 19-24 on the Brigham Young University campus.

The camp is a rich academic and interpersonal experience that will foster a global perspective as well as develop important individual leadership skills. All interested high school students are eligible to attend.

Students will have a chance to practice their parliamentary procedure, negotiate in challenging scenarios, meet with ambassadors and foreign dignitaries and network with their peers.

Each participant will receive a country assignment in a small group of 10 other student leaders. The group will form their own delegation where they will learn, compete and share experiences throughout the week.

Other activities include a showcase of cultures, international games and cinema night and diplomats' dinner, reception and dance.

Cost for the camp is $400 and includes all expenses, including room and board for the week. Students can register at http://diplomacycamp.byu.edu.

Workshops and activities at the camp will be centered on a five-fold curriculum dealing with issues pertaining to leadership foundations, the local side of global issues, culture matters: understanding the world, the five skills of parliamentary debate and trends in international relations.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
