Congress to Campus brings former members of Congress together with students to increase civic literacy and participation. A bipartisan pair of former members travel to college, university and community college campuses for two day visits. During the visit, former members conduct classes, hold community forums, meet informally with students and faculty, visit high schools and civic organizations, and do interviews and talk show appearances with local press and media. This setting allows students to discover, on a more personal basis, what participation in a democracy entails.

The aim of Congress to Campus is to engage students and provide inspiration that will lead to greater democratic participation; whether it is in the arena of public service or something as simple as voting.
