What is the Advocacy Department?
The Advocacy Department of USG is charged with staying in close contact with administrators and students about issues affecting students 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 department include representatives from all cultural assemblies and organizations on campus who work to 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, the President, and the Vice President, and the Chief Diversity Officer with projects, and communicate with individual students regarding their concerns.
