Community Partner Meeting(s), July 14th and July 20th, 2021
Community partners are invited to join us on Wednesday, July 14th at 3:00 pm or Tuesday, July 20th at 10:00 am for our Fall 2021 Community Partner Meetings! These meetings will provide you with an opportunity to meet with the CCE office staff and SUNY Buffalo State faculty to discuss service-learning and community-engaged learning partnerships for the upcoming semester! We hope to see you there. Registration is now open.
In Spring 2020, the campus submitted an application for Buffalo State to receive a Voter Friendly Campus designation for March 2021-December 2022.
The Voter Friendly Campus designation program was started through the partnership of Campus Vote Project and NASPA in 2016. The Higher Education Act of 1965 requires institutions to distribute voter registration forms to their students. However, beyond that, instructions and guidance are vague. The Campus Vote Project and Young Invincibles have created a more measurable (and manageable) set of guidelines for schools to follow to create a more voter-friendly campus. The goal of the Voter Friendly Campus program is to help institutions develop a strategy to engage students and set clear goals so a path can be created in advance of upcoming elections. These activities can be institutionalized for years to come, keeping students engaged as they enter, and move through their time at school.
Higher education’s focus on civic engagement not only helps students to better understand their impact on those around them, but it also creates better students. Encouraging and assisting Buffalo State students to vote will establish participatory habits that will last well beyond their collegiate experience. Incorporating democratic engagement into campus life creates structure and stability for students as they explore what their political beliefs are and how they would like to engage in the democratic process.
Partner with WSPN’s Summer Lunch Series! Kick off is July 5th! If you would like to volunteer or would like more information on the program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
