CMU: A voter-friendly campus
University recognized for helping students overcome barriers to civic engagement
The Campus Vote Project and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators have named Central Michigan University a Voter-Friendly Campus.
To earn the designation, CMU representatives participated in training to develop and implement voter-friendly programs designed to help students overcome the challenges of voting.
These programs included creating an engagement initiative on campus and distributing voting information at Leadership Safari. Also, Central's Student Government Association passed a resolution encouraging faculty to cancel classes and not have exams or papers due on Election Day.
By implementing such programs, CMU hopes to foster a culture of political participation and help students become lifelong engaged citizens.
