Paul Loeb to depart; CEEP announces search for CEO

Loeb Returns To Writing Roots

Paul Loeb, founder and President of Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP), announced Jan. 6 that he is transitioning out of his role with the leading organization for engaging students in elections on American college and university campuses. He plans to return to writing on politics and civic engagement, such as his Soul of a Citizen book.

“I’ve been proud to watch CEEP grow from a tiny pilot in 2008 and its relaunch in 2012 to our current size and impact. When we started, I had no idea whether schools would be receptive to our message,” says Loeb. CEEP is now considered a leader in innovative ways of reaching and mobilizing student voters. In 2020, CEEP worked with over 600 schools with a combined enrollment of 6.4 million students and employed 30 full- and part-time staff, as well as over 350 student Fellows. CEEP is now working to engage students for the 2021-2022 cycle, building on 2018 when it helped student turnout double from four years before, with a million more students voting at its partner schools. 

CEEP Begins CEO Search

After driving meaningful impact for over a decade, CEEP is seeking a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to lead the organization into its next phase of growth and development. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the CEO will lead the organization as CEEP continues to expand and grow, building its approaches and infrastructure to achieve even greater impact helping students become engaged citizens and voters. The CEO will also serve as the organization’s lead public voice and work with CEEP’s fundraising team to engage CEEP’s existing donors and cultivating new supporters so the organization can continue to grow . This is an exciting opportunity for an innovative organizational leader with a strong commitment to citizen engagement.

“Our country faces huge challenges in this difficult time, including how to rebuild our democracy. I believe that CEEP will continue to have a major role to contribute by increasing the participation of student and young voters,” says Loeb. We are grateful for Loeb’s vision and work, and we wish him all the best as he focuses on his political writing career. We now seek to continue CEEP’s journey into its next phase. A full job description for the CEO position, including qualifications and responsibilities and a link to apply are available on the site of the firm heading our search.
