Democracy Day

What is Democracy Day?

Spruce tree character

In June 2021, Stanford University designated Election Day—the Tuesday after the first Monday in November each year—an annual “Democracy Day.” No classes are scheduled on this day, and students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate in programming designed to promote democratic participation, civic engagement, and community building.

Stanford's inaugural Democracy Day took place on November 2, 2021.
