Despite recent gains, community college student voting rates are nearly 10 percentage points lower than those of four-year colleges and universities. Through the Community College Commitment – a new, nonpartisan initiative – the business community is working to close this gap by turning out 500,000 new community college voters by 2028. 


Community colleges represent more than 10 million students and are traditionally more diverse than four-year colleges and universities. Through voter registration, education and mobilization initiatives in collaboration with nonpartisan nonprofit partner organizations such as the Students Learn Students Vote Coalition and the American Association of Community Colleges, the participating companies aim to close the voting gap between community colleges and four-year colleges and universities. 

The Community College Commitment invites the business community to join this effort by directing a portion of their respective organizations’ voting efforts toward community colleges.
