Partners for Campus-Community Engagement is facilitating this voting challenge in collaboration with the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, a national nonpartisan nonprofit. Awards will be based on campuses’ National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) reports generated by the Institute for Democracy & Higher Education at Tufts University in Mass. Participation in the New York Campus VotingChallenge will automatically include participation in the national ALL IN program awards celebrations.
Through funding from AmeriCorps and in collaboration with the Partnership Alliance, PCCE was able to award over $14,600 to seven partner campuses:
The MLK Choir performing at Hobart & William Smith Colleges
Volunteers at Juniata College MLK Service event
PCCE is excited to announce that we will be recruiting 21 AmeriCorps VISTA members to join our 24-25 cohort! Our projects span across New York and Pennsylvania and members will begin their year of service June 17, 2024.
The purpose of Civic Imagination Scholarships is designed to support community-based organizations and higher ed institutions working together in New York & Pennsylvania whether by proximity or interest in similar topics to address common issues. This scholarship program is open to students who have innovative ideas for addressing local civic problems, either on campus or in the local community. Our goal is to create a diverse cohort of creative student civic leaders from across New York and Pennsylvania who are inspired to strengthen our democracy through civic and community engagement.
PCCE’s Communities of Practice gather civic and community engagement professionals – in and outside of higher education – to create a learning community where community is emphasized equally with learning. Our CoPs are grounded in relationships and community building, as well as learning and practice.

PCCE’s AmeriCorps VISTA program is organized to support our partners with developing or advancing the infrastructure of their campus-community partnerships. All PCCE partners are eligible to apply for an AmeriCorps VISTA project at a significantly reduced rate compared to the full cost-share of a VISTA member through AmeriCorps directly.
