For the third-straight year, NC Campus Compact will convene students who are leading non-partisan voter engagement efforts on campuses across the state.
North Carolina Campus Compact will host the third-annual NC College Voter Summit on Saturday, Sept. 15.
The day-long training and idea exchange is geared for students who are leading campuswide, nonpartisan voter engagement efforts at colleges and universities across the state. Sessions will cover civic education topics like the proposed NC state constitutional amendments as well as skills for campus organizers like writing a campus voting plan or registering students during the early voting period.
Representatives from a number of partner organizations will help lead the Summit. These include Campus Vote Project, the Institute for Democracy and Higher Education, NASPA’s Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement initiative, the Students Learn Students Vote coalition, Common Cause NC, You Can Vote, and Elon Votes! Funding for the event is provided in part by the national Campus Election Engagement Project through a grant to NC Campus Compact.
North Carolina Campus Compact is a collaborative network of colleges and universities committed to educating students for civic and social responsibility, partnering with communities for positive change, and strengthening democracy. The NC Campus Compact state office, hosted by Elon University, fosters connections between campuses, shares best practice information and resources, recognizes outstanding work, and champions civic and community engagement in higher education.
