Give to the Center for Civic Engagement

CCE Programs You Can Help Support
The Bridging the Digital Divide Program (BDDP)
BDDP's goal is to help local populations acquire both the equipment and skills necessary to effectively use information technology. Broadly speaking, the term "digital divide" refers to disparities in access to and facility with information technology (IT) based on demographic factors, such as race, ethnicity, income, education level, and gender. In the greater Binghamton area, populations with limited access to IT include senior citizens, the formerly homeless or incarcerated, immigrants & refugees, youth with limited financial means, and unemployed or under-employed adults, among others. For more information, visit BDDP's website.
Through activities which promote and facilitate political engagement on campus and in the community, CCE hopes to produce informed, engaged, and active citizens who participate in public elections and related activities. Coordinated, in part, by the Political Engagement Task Force, these activities include Community Issues Forums and events to increase student knowledge about relevant issues, voter registration drives, debates and candidate Q&As, internships, an election day celebration (providing a fun, festive atmosphere where students can vote), and many more.
