Campus Election Engagement Project



Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP), is a national nonpartisan project that helps administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders at America’s colleges and universities engage students in federal, state, and local elections. In 2018, CEEP reached 439 colleges and universities in 22 states, reaching an estimated 4.7 million students.

CEEP manages a student Fellows program. In Fall 2018, CEEP worked with 259 Fellows in 22 states, including 25 Fellows in Wisconsin at 14 colleges and universities. CEEP Fellows organize voter registration events, distribute educational materials to their peers, and organize and carry out Get Out the Vote events leading up to Election Day, recruiting volunteers on campus along the way. Meet our Wisconsin Fellows here. CEEP is also piloting a year-round Fellowship program with an increased focus on institutionalizing engagement programs, in addition to its focus on immediate impact. There are 16 Fellows in six states part of this pilot, including three in Wisconsin.

CEEP also produces high-quality materials and resources including nonpartisan candidate and issue guides for major elections and issues most salient to students, a guide to engaging students at orientation, and an updated social media toolkit.

CCWI hosts one part-time CEEP staffer, Luke Verdecchia, and provides CEEP with additional support and guidance in Wisconsin, including connection to CCWI’s already vast network. This partnership allows CCWI to advocate for CEEP and vice versa, strengthening both organizations and improving their visibility across Wisconsin.
