Celebrating our 2017-2018 Voter Friendly Campus Designees

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 and faculty 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. 

In March 2017, eighty-three campuses in 23 states earned the designation as a “Voter Friendly Campuses”.  The institutions that undertook the designation process represented a range of two-year, four-year, public, private, rural, and urban campuses, with a total enrollment of nearly 1.4 million students. 

The following colleges and universities earned the Voter Friendly Campus designation for 2017-2018:
