OU Recognized as a 'Voter Friendly Campus'
Patch Rochester, Michigan, Eric Reikowski:
"For a second straight election cycle, Oakland University has been designated a "Voter Friendly Campus" by the Fair Elections Center's Campus Vote Project (CVP) and NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. The designation is valid through December 2022.
The mission of the Voter Friendly Campus initiative is to boost efforts that help students overcome barriers to participating in the political process. OU was evaluated based on its plan to register, educate, and turn out student voters in the 2020 election.
"To get the designation of a Voter Friendly Campus, we had to submit an action plan early in 2020 detailing our planned election engagement work for the election season, and then report on those efforts after implementing the plan for the general election," said David Dulio, professor of political science and director of OU's Center for Civic Engagement."
