CEEP is a nonpartisan project that assists the nation in encouraging students to register to vote, educate themselves on current and upcoming elections, volunteer in campaigns, and show up at the polls to vote. They partner with Iowa Campus Compact to educate university administrators, staff, faculty, and students to actively engage in America’s democracy. In the past, they have supported around 300 campus in their efforts.
