Campus Election Engagement Project

New resources to increase campus voter engagement

Posted on May 15, 2017

Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) is a national non-partisan project that helps America’s colleges and universities get as many of their 20 million students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves, and turn out at the polls. Focusing on ways administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders can help engage their students, we worked directly with 200 schools in 2008 (and reached 300 more through partner organizations, and 250 in 2012 and 500 through partner organizations. In 2014, our first year working in a midterm election, our outreach spanned the nation and engaged 280 schools directly and another 680 through partner organizations, for a total combined enrollment of nearly 8 million students.

New resources:

And a self-assessment for your campus

CEEP appreciates your hard work engaging your students in democracy. We’ve designed this self-assessment to help you identify which nonpartisan electoral practices currently take place at your institution and which can be usefully added. After taking it, please share with your campus nonpartisan engagement team and save the results so you’ll have a benchmark for future comparisons. Our staffers are eager to then go through the results and provide with tools, resource and ideas to help you develop your ongoing electoral engagement plans.
