Washington Seminar and Student Advocacy Day

Each year university representatives in Washington (DC) organize a day of learning and advocacy.  For example, in early 2019 50 students from 8 universities heard from a number of panelists on subjects, such as the budget/appropriations process, effective advocacy tools, and navigang a career in public policy.  Each school’s students took part in Congressional Office meetings set up for them by their respective Government Relations staff.  For more information, contact the Government Relations staff at your university, or program coordinator Mike Ringler at the University of Pittsburgh (jmr213@pitt.edu) or the ACC consortium coordinator (Dave Brown, brown@wfu.edu).
