SU NAMED VOTER FRIENDLY CAMPUS
Susquehanna University News, Staff report:
"Susquehanna University is designated as a Voter Friendly Campus by the Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project and NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education.
The national, nonpartisan organizations evaluated Susquehanna on how the university mobilized student voters and facilitated voter engagement efforts on its campus in the fall 2020 election – all in the face of the upheaval caused by a global pandemic.
“Susquehanna made a strong statement about the civic mission of higher education through its pointed efforts to educate our students on the democratic process,” said Miranda Carrasquillo, coordinator of the David '69 and Sharon Johnson Center for Civic Engagement. “Through our on-campus efforts we encouraged them to become a part of the process, not just during a presidential election, but every election.”
As part of Susquehanna’s effort to engage students in the democratic process, the university launched Achieve. Lead. Vote!, a nonpartisan initiative that expands upon the university’s mission and values of the university’s motto, “Achieve. Lead. Serve.” Achieve. Lead. Vote! seeks to streamline, demystify and educate students on ballot issues, and election and voting processes at all levels."
