The Swarthmore Political Access Network (SPAN) is a Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility initiative originally created in 2015 as the Swarthmore Political Engagement Project (SPEP) which aims to provide the Swarthmore College community with accurate and timely information concerning elections, voting, and participation.
Operating under the guidance of Lang Center staff and the Swarthmore College Get Out the Vote Steering Committee, SPAN is coordinated by Ryan Arazi and Robert Gunn. If you are interested in participating in this committee, please contact us.
