All In Challenge logoALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge

An initiative of the 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Civic Nation, the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge strives for a more inclusive democracy—one where all voices are heard. As part of that vision, the organization seeks to change civic culture and institutionalize democratic engagement activities and programs on college campuses, making them a defining feature of campus life. ALL IN To Vote is a project of the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge that provides voter-related information, including ways students can get involved in efforts to increase voter turnout. CCAC is proud to be a participating college and is a signatory of the Presidents’ Commitment.

Thanks to civically engaged students like you, CCAC received a Gold Seal for Excellence in Student Voter Engagement from the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge for achieving a student voting rate between 40% and 49% in the 2018 midterm elections. This challenge rewards colleges that promote voter registration and participation. The average for college campuses in Pennsylvania participating in the challenge was 37%.
