Campus Vote Project (CVP) was launched in 2012 by Fair Elections Center (Center) to expand our work on student voting issues.  We work with universities, community colleges, faculty, students, and election officials to reduce barriers to student voting. CVP helps campuses institutionalize reforms that empower students with the information they need to register and vote.

 

Position Description

Campus Vote Project seeks a State Coordinator for North Carolina. The State Coordinator is a key member of our team. They are charged with managing and strengthening existing relationships with campus administration and faculty leadership and establishing new, lasting relationships with campuses to carry out our goals. They also supervise “Democracy Fellows,” student positions committed to carrying out democratic engagement programs on their campuses. Democracy Fellows coordinate with administration and faculty, helping organize student voter registration, voter education, and voter turnout activities. The position reports directly to the Southeast Regional Coordinator for Campus Vote Project. 

 

Goals of the Program:

  • Engage campuses at an institutional level to help create nonpartisan democratic engagement programs that promote voter registration, voter education, voter turnout, and foster student leadership across the entire campus community.
  • Provide campus administrators, faculty, and student leadership with accurate nonpartisan information on the voting process and elections through trainings, materials, and one-on-one support. 
  • Ensure campus administrators, faculty, and student leadership conduct comprehensive voter engagement programs and begin institutionalizing and cultivating a long-term culture of democratic engagement on their campuses.
  • Implement CVP’s program with approximately 20 campus partners and 20 Democracy Fellows across North Carolina. 
  • Coordinate with CVP’s coalition partners also conducting nonpartisan civic engagement programs on campuses, including the North Carolina Campus Voting Coalition.  
  • Engage with coalition partners, make CVP materials and resources available to partners, and foster greater administrator/institutional-level engagement of these partners’ programs.
  • Complete progress reports highlighting sharable best practices and lessons learned for other institutions and conduct an evaluation of all efforts throughout and at the end of each year.
  • Organize an annual summit to bring together campus partners and facilitate building a statewide network of democratically engaged campuses across the state.

 

Requirements:

  • History of organizing work either on campuses or with political/issue campaigns.
  • Superior communication skills both written and oral.
  • Access to a car as travel throughout the state will be required, when the pandemic subsides. 
  • Experience engaging diverse constituencies and experience with institutions of higher education is a benefit.

 Approach:
