As part of our efforts to strengthen democracy, NC Campus Compact will help mobilize our member institutions to ensure a complete census count in North Carolina. We are excited to provide information and funding to support this work throughout the state.

2020 Census Engagement Fellows (CEF)
NC Campus Compact, in partnership with Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP), is sponsoring a Fellow at 11 member colleges and universities. The Census Fellows will target communities historically identified as hard-to-count communities to ensure they have the information they need to complete and submit their Census form. This program is intended to complement the state-wide efforts of the NC Complete Count Commission and the NC Counts Coalition.
Visit the Census Engagement Fellows site.
There is a Census 2020 Knowledge Hub on the national Campus Compact website with essential information and resources about the 2020 Census for institutions of higher education.
Here are a few resources with quick overviews explaining the census.
