2016-2018 Voter Friendly Campus Designation Interest Form


6/2/2016 - 6/30/2016

 

Voter Friendly Campus Designation | Interest Form Due - May 13, 2016


Supported by NASPA and
Fair Elections Legal Network's Campus Vote Project 

Higher education’s focus on civic engagement not only helps students to better understand their impact on those around them, it creates better students. Encouraging and assisting your students to vote will establish participatory habits that will last well beyond their collegiate experience. Incorporating democratic engagement into campus life creates structure and stability for students as they explore what their political beliefs are, and how they would like to engage in the democratic process.

The Higher Education Act of 1965 requires institutions to distribute voter registration forms to their students. However, beyond that, instructions and guidance are vague. The Campus Vote Project and Young Invincibles have created a more measurable (and manageable) set of guidelines for schools to follow to create a more voter-friendly campus.

NASPA is proud to partner with the Campus Vote Project to offer this opportunity to institutions interested in engaging students, faculty, administration, and community partners in the democratic process.  This program is endorsed by our colleagues at the American Democracy Project, The Democracy Commitment, and Young Invincibles
