Pitt Votes Ambassador Program

We are looking for students who possess an interest in civic and community engagement to be Voter Ambassadors! You’ll help us encourage voter participation and civic engagement across campus by tabling, registering students to vote, sharing voter info with your peers, and participating in civic engagement events. You must be:

  • a student at Pitt
  • willing to learn about PA election guidelines
  • able to commit 25 hours per semester

Sound like you? Stay tuned- we’ll post application materials at the beginning of the semester. Feel free to email us at pittvotes@pitt.edu to see if there are earlier opportunities to engage!

Paid Fellowships

*All fellowship positions for the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters are currently filled

CEEP

Campus Elections Engagement Project (CEEP) – is a national non-partisan project that helps America’s colleges and universities get as many of their 20 million students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves, and turn out at the polls. We teach administrators, faculty, staff and student leaders to use their institutional resources to engage students.

The University of Pittsburgh will have up to two (2) fellows (available to any current student) that will assist in the development of this plan and implement independent ideas on campus. The goal is to engage students in the entire election process.
