The Voter Friendly Campus initiative announced this week that UCF has been designated a “Voter Friendly Campus.” Led by nonpartisan organizations, Campus Vote Project and National Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, Haley Winston, assistant director for Office of Student Involvement, led UCF in the charge to join the inaugural class and receive this designation.
The Voter Friendly Campus designation program aims to help institutions develop plans to coordinate administrators, faculty and student organizations in civic and electoral engagement. This opportunity can help administrators develop a strategy to engage students and set clear goals so a path can be created in advance of upcoming elections.
UCF’s efforts to break down barriers and empower students with the information and tools they need to participate in the political process take the idea of the civic mission of higher education to prepare students to participate in our democracy and turn it in to action.
