We are especially excited about our Election Engagement Fellows Program, which currently supports 12 student leaders on 12 campuses. These EE Fellows will lead non-partisan voter engagement activities and assist the campus in developing institutional supports for future election engagement. In designing the fellowship, we consulted with staff of the national CEEP organization, the national Campus Vote Project, and the Andrew Goodman Foundation, whose Vote Everywhere Ambassadors do similar work at schools nationwide, including at four NC schools. We also learned from Common Cause NC, which coordinates a Democracy Fellows program at HBCU’s across the state. Funding for the program is providing by CEEP and by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation through its “Strengthening Democracy” initiative.
NC Campus Compact looks forward to supporting these student leaders as they work to engage fellow students and build campus supports for continued civic engagement!
