Campuses are also urged to implement best practices for on-the-ground voter education and registration efforts at campus housing and other high-traffic areas on campus. AICCU will join the University of California, the California State University and the California Community Colleges as members of the California Student Vote Project.

AICCU is comprised of 78 private nonprofit colleges and universities, which make up the Independent California Colleges and Universities sector. The core mission of these institutions is to improve lives through higher education by honoring a deep commitment to the public good and by embracing diversity. ICCU institutions range from large nationally-ranked research universities to small faith-based colleges.
