Alverno College was named a Voter Friendly Campus by NASPA - Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project.
The Voter Friendly Campus program is designed to help institutions address the myriad challenges that prevent college students from participating in the political process and foster a culture of democratic engagement on their campuses, including in years without a national election. This designation recognizes college and university campuses that have committed to voter registration, education, and turnout as part of their institutional mission.
In all, more than 250 other colleges and universities across 38 states and Washington D.C. were also recognized. The institutions designated 2023 Voter Friendly Campuses include a wide range of two-year, four-year, public, private, rural, and urban campuses that collectively serve over 3.5 million students. Of these, 71 are joining the program for the first time. Notably, the list of designated institutions includes 49 Minority Serving Institutions and 13 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, as well as 41 Community Colleges.
