SUNY Niagara has committed to the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge (ALL IN), encouraging each eligible college student to register to vote and then cast a ballot in every election.

SUNY Niagara President William Murabito joined more than 625 college presidents and chancellors who also have signed on to the challenge, which aims to fully engage students in the electoral process.

“President Murabito has committed SUNY Niagara to ALL IN with enthusiasm and a pledge to empower students to add their voices to the democratic process,” said Vice President of Student Services Alissa Shugats Cummings. “We are proud to support this important initiative.”

By signing the pledge, SUNY Niagara committed to ensuring all eligible students are able to register to vote and cast informed ballots in the general elections and beyond. Further, the college committed to fostering a campus culture that supports nonpartisan civic learning, political engagement and voter participation.

“Today, young people are truly seeing how the decisions their elected officials make impact their everyday lives, and in this critical time, ensuring that they are able to make their voices heard safely is critical,” said Jennifer Domagal-Goldman, executive director of ALL IN. “We are excited to partner with higher education leaders across the country to change the culture at colleges and universities around engagement in our country’s political process.”

ALL IN is a nonpartisan, national initiative of Civic Nation, a nonprofit organization that supports campuses efforts to increase nonpartisan democratic engagement and full student voter participation. ALL IN encourages colleges and universities to help students become active and informed citizens. More than 975 campuses, enrolling more than 9.7 million students, have joined ALL IN since its launch in summer 2016.
