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. In 2018 we helped a million more students vote at the schools we engaged compared to 2104, then surmounted the COVID challenges of 2020 to work with 609 colleges with a total enrollment of 6.4 million students, while sponsoring 352 student Election Engagement Fellows.  See our Executive Summary for a sense of our impact. 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)

Redistricting Resources for Students and Faculty

Once every decade, the new census data is used to divide each state into geographic legislative districts, with each having roughly the same number of individuals. The decision about where to draw new district boundaries has critical implications for equal representation and fair elections, so the political and voting power of students is at stake. […]
