The Student Assembly is committed to enhancing the student experience by providing resources to campus student organizations and ensuring the representation of SUNY students on the local, state, and federal levels, as well as throughout the expansive SUNY system, through our extensive advocacy initiatives.
Using our newly adopted advocacy agenda, the Student Assembly launched its second annual in-district student advocacy week. Students took meetings with state legislators to discuss the issues that affect students directly and the importance of passing critical higher education legislation. In one week, the Student Assembly successfully organized and facilitated meetings with 18 legislators involving 29 students representing 12 campuses.
In addition to this incredibly impactful week of advocacy, students and members of the Student Assembly’s Executive Committee have had dozens of meetings with lawmakers throughout the year, reaching districts that represent hundreds of thousands of SUNY students.
Our advocacy efforts didn't stop here- the Student Assembly is constantly working to reach new heights with our advocacy. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Chief of Staff Taryn Rackmyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
