The UCR Counts! Census 2020 Complete Count Committee is a team of campus leaders who are joining together to ensure that UCR and its communities are accurately accounted for during this year’s census.

The committee consists of students and faculty from ASUCR, the Center for Social Innovation, the Office of Government & Community Relations, the Office of Student Life and Undocumented Student Programs. In an interview with The Highlander, Eric Calderon, the director of the transfer & non-traditional student committee for ASUCR and the educational ambassador for the initiative wrote, “The census is by far one of the most important civic engagement activities in the U.S. and is critical for our nation.” Calderon stated that as a committee, they are working closely with their partners from the UC Office of the President, the U.S. Census Bureau, the California Complete Count Office and the Inland Empire Complete Count Committee to host various information sessions and outreach campaigns to promote the importance of the 2020 census.
