Colleges and universities have a special responsibility to the communities in which we are situated to ensure a complete count in the 2020 Census because it will directly impact political representation, federal funding and demographic statistics for college towns. Off-campus, adult, renter and highly mobile students are at risk of being uncounted for a variety of reasons. Survey research data and response rates have shown that those who know more about how census data are used and about the process are more likely to participate.
