Macomb Community College recognized as a Voter Friendly Campus

– Monday, March 15, 2021 10:00AM

Macomb Community College has been designated as a Voter Friendly Campus by an initiative led by the Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project and NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. The designation recognizes the college’s efforts to help students overcome barriers to participating in the democratic process including encouraging students to register and vote. This is the third time Macomb has been recognized.

Macomb is one of 15 higher education institutions in Michigan to receive the designation and among more than 234 campuses in 37 states and the District of Columbia to be honored. Campuses were evaluated on their ability to complete a three-step process. These included writing a campus plan about how they would engage student voters in 2020, facilitating voter education and engagement efforts on their campus, and writing a final analysis on their efforts. The designation is valid through December 2022.
