CEEP Student Fellows lead efforts to engage college student voters

September 7, 2016

CEEP_Logo_2014This summer — with support from the national Campus Election Engagement Project and Ben & Jerry’s “Democracy in Your Hands” initiative — we welcomed 5 student leaders to our EE Fellows Program. They joined a group of 12 student fellows who began working last spring to support non-partisan, campus-based efforts to engage student voters this fall and to institutionalize programs and processes to sustain future democratic participation on their campus. Learn more about these democratically-dedicated election energizers below.
