The purpose of this page is to make participation in the democratic process simpler for our faculty, staff and students. It includes information for in-state and out-of-state residents, candidates for office, and internal and external groups who wish to sponsor election-related events on campus.
Fayetteville State University is a strong supporter of student involvement in the voting process. Registered student organizations are encouraged to hold voter registration drives, as well as host voter education forums and invite candidates to campus events. However, as a state institution every voting related activity is scrutinized to ensure non-partisanship and fair, equal treatment of all candidates.
To that end, we ask that all candidates adhere to policies regarding political campaigning on campus. These policies and our implementation are based on North Carolina General Statutes Section 126-13 and 126-14. These policies apply to FSU faculty, staff, and students as well as individuals external to FSU. The policies are not intended to limit discussion among faculty, administrators, and other State employees regarding political or campaign issues, or candidates, or to limit debate.
Our office does not coordinate the partnerships with student groups. We allow our student groups to determine with whom they choose to partner. However, we do keep an list of organizations that work in this area on our webpage as a resource for the students.
