Voter Friendly Campus
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 are evaluated and designated as an official Voter Friendly Campus. Recently released, The Voter Friendly Campus (VFC) report reflects on the program’s inaugural designation process. The 84 institutions (out of 94 that started the program) that received the designation for 2017-2018 were selected because of their commitment to promoting democratic engagement on campus.
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, The Democracy Commitment, Students Learn Students Vote, and Young Invincibles.
