North Carolina Central University (NCCU) has been named a ‘Voter Friendly Campus,’ by Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NAPSA). The initiative recognizes institutions that planned and implemented practices to encourage students to register and vote in the 2022 and future elections.
NCCU is one of 13 historically Black colleges or universities (HBCUs) in the nation and one of 14 campuses in the state of North Carolina to receive this designation. The institution was evaluated based on a written plan for how it planned to register, educate and turnout student voters in 2022, and how it facilitated voter engagement efforts on campus with a final analysis of efforts.
“This designation is important as it amplifies NCCU’s civic engagement commitment to reduce barriers for our students to wholly participate in the democratic process,” said Calleen Herbert, director of NCCU’s Office of Community Engagement and Service.
