Graduate and professional education is extremely important for our nation, and the past year has created a unique and difficult series of challenges for higher education that need to be addressed! Congress will not act on these issues until we make our voices heard in Washington. Please join us for our Virtual Advocacy Summit and Legislative Action Days to lift up graduate voices!
The Advocacy Summit is designed to prepare attendees for meetings with their representatives on Capitol Hill. The two days of the Advocacy Summit will include informational sessions on policy issues, and best practices for conducting meetings with policymakers on issues in higher education policy. Over the following three days, we will be discussing three key elements from our platform: Student Debt, The College Transparency Act, and Student Visa Reform. During the final day, attendees will be able to practice their skills alongside other attendees during mock visits.
Following the Advocacy summit, we encourage those participating to contact/meet their representatives to advocate for graduate and professional education from 10/11 – 10/22.
