ABOUT CEEP

Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) is a national nonpartisan project that helps administrators, faculty, staff and student leaders at America’s colleges and universities engage students in federal, state and local elections, working to promote a more equitable and inclusive democracy, and to overcome the ever-changing barriers to voting.  With support and guidance from our state directors, our schools help their students to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves on candidates and issues, navigate confusing voting laws, and turn out at the polls. We worked with 439 campuses in 2018, that enrolled 4.7 million students, and sponsored 259 student Election Engagement Fellows. We’re now engaging students in the 2020 elections, both in-person and virtually. Because individuals who vote when they’re young tend to continue, and because we help schools deepen their electoral engagement each cycle, we generate both immediate and long-term impact.

“There’s no doubt CEEP’s activities are having an impact. Patiently and deliberately you have built a unique and valuable ally of democracy, engaging this generation of young people. I continue to admire and salute you, in no small part because you were ahead of your time.” – PBS journalist Bill Moyers

 “You did a great job in conveying a critically important message to every West Chester student! As a proud West Chester University alum who went on to serve as Mayor, County Commissioner and 20-year US Congress member, I can guarantee you that voting in every election provides the ultimate strength of our democracy. Your bipartisan message is right on target!” – Curt Weldon,  former member of Congress (R-PA)
