Campus Election Engagement Project

Campus Electoral Engagement Self-Assessment, Deadline March 29

Posted on March 26, 2019

Campus Election Engagement Project has developed a new and improved Self-Assessment Tool for colleges and universities to gauge their electoral engagement on campus.  This tool should take no longer than ten minutes to complete. We developed this Campus Electoral Engagement Self-Assessment to help campuses identify which non-partisan, high-impact electoral engagement practices currently take place at their institution, and which could be added.

The tool is meant to serve as a starting point for faculty, staff, and students to develop a strategic plan to enhance student engagement in elections at the local, state, and federal levels.  We recommend each university partner complete the assessment once per year.  To get started,  please feel free to complete the Online Self-Assessment Tool.  We request you complete the Self-Assessment no later than March 29, 2019. Once completed we will review the assessment with you and help you plan activities that best suit your campus.

NOTE: All responses shared with CEEP will be kept private, used only to help our campus partners enhance their electoral engagement efforts.

Ultimately, we believe that each campus should be dedicated to not only helping students register to vote but also to providing them with resources, information, and opportunities necessary to educate themselves on the choices, get involved in the process as volunteers, and ultimately cast their ballot ensuring their voice is part of our democratic dialogue. Further, we believe that non-partisan electoral engagement is a key element of general civic engagement and that campuses have a responsibility to engage students in our democracy. Our core engagement resource, 7 Key Ways to Act, provides concrete ways to do this.
