Student leaders collaborate with the Partnership to invite local legislators to a reception on their campus. Students who have attended the advocacy workshop will put their skills to the test by engaging with key leaders and sharing about the unique value their campus has to the state.
An engaging session held on your campus to introduce students to the concepts and skills required for advocacy. We'll introduce you to current issues in higher ed policy and you'll develop your own talking points and practice presenting them. We'll work with you to adjust the advocacy workshop to your group's existing knowledge and comfort level - making sure everyone's an expert before we leave!
Build Your Own
Here at the Partnership, we recognize that every campus is unique. All 14 universities have different strengths, opportunities, and cultures. We believe building strong advocates starts with your passion, so we're here to help with that mission - whether you want to host a panel on specific issues related to higher education policy or develop leadership lessons for your SGA, we're all ears. Contact Ale'gna to develop your plan.
Advocacy Day at the State House
Advocacy Days invite students to take their knowledge on the road, by traveling to Montgomery with a small group. This is designed to give students an opportunity to peek behind the curtain of lawmaking - sit in the gallery to watch a vote in the Alabama Legislature, take a tour of the State Capitol, and visit with your legislators while they work.
