WHAT IS THE ADVOCACY BRANCH?
The advocacy branch of USG is charged with staying in close contact with key administrators, student organizations, and students about issues affecting students that lie in their area of focus. These concerns may come from the data collected by Senators, administrators, individual students or student organizations.
The members of this branch create solutions to problems that represent a middle ground between students, staff, faculty, and the community. They serve as the liaison between key administration and students, making sure students are aware of important changes that are taking place and creating awareness of available resources for students. They lead university-wide committees, pursue advocacy projects, assist other USG members and the President/Vice President with projects, and communicate with individual students regarding their concerns.
