Juneau Legislative Advocacy Team

Purpose

The USUAA Legislative Advocacy Team travels to Juneau each year to meet with legislators, lobbyists, and key personnel to voice the concerns of the UAA student body on various legislative issues. Before traveling to Juneau the Advocacy Team holds programs and meets with UAA students to gather stories and information that will enhance the Team’s ability to represent the student body. This information also helps the Team establish a consistent message and/or theme for the trip. Team members also work with the UA Coalition of Student Leaders and other UA student advocacy groups to support funding for the University system and higher education in the state of Alaska.


If you want to apply to be part of the 2014 Advocacy Team, the application deadline will be announced in November, 2013.
