Civic Engagement Alliance

Non-Partisan Student Groups Working Together to Create a More Politically Aware UT

The Civic Engagement Alliance (CEA)

The CEA is a collaborative nonpartisan effort to improve voter engagement and other forms of civic engagement on campus; the CEA is convened by TX Votes and includes many different political and nonpolitical organizations and institutes on campus.

Participation is simple:

1. Choose a rep to attend one meeting per semester.

2. Register the students in your organization to vote. (If you don't have a Volunteer Deputy Registrar in your org/institute, don't worry, we can help!)

3. Share nonpartisan voting information around election time.

Join the CEA or confirm your organization's 2019-2020 membership information here:
