Campus Vote Project – Voter Friendly Campus
Posted by Campus Vote Project on October 22, 2019
We are accepting Statements of Interest for the Voter Friendly Campus program until we reach 225 institutions or January 30th. Right now, spots are filling up quickly so we recommend submitting your Statement of Interest now.
The Voter Friendly Campus designation program was started through the partnership of Campus Vote Project and NASPA in 2016. The goal of the program is to help institutions develop plans to coordinate administrators, faculty, and student organizations in civic and electoral engagement.
The Voter Friendly Campus designation helps administrators develop a strategy to engage students and set clear goals so a path can be created in advance of upcoming elections. These activities can be institutionalized for years to come, keeping students engaged as they enter, and move through their time at school.
After colleges and universities execute their plan to help students register and vote campuses will be evaluated and designated as an official Voter Friendly Campus. You can see the 2019-2020 Voter Friendly Campuses here.
CAMPUS VOTE PROJECT and NASPA are proud to offer this opportunity to institutions interested in engaging students, faculty, administration, and community partners in the democratic process. This program is endorsed by American Democracy Project, Students Learn Students Vote, and Young Invincibles.
