Civic Engagement

The Civic Engagement team maintains student voter registration and civic engagement as its main priorities.  This team is in charge of hosting events that allow the student body to engage with their community and elected officials at all levels. Dates and other details for civic engagement events will be updated throughout the year.

2020 Census

The 2020 Census is a form that takes less than five minutes to fill out, but will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in funding across the nation every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade. It is important that every student at Auburn fills out the Census, to ensure that we get the resources we need! To complete the Census, go to my2020census.gov on your computer or smartphone and answer all of the necessary questions, making sure to count your primary residence in Auburn. We are all counting on you to take the 2020 Census!
