LEGISLATIVE ADVOCATES: WHO ARE THEY AND WHAT DO THEY DO

Legislative advocates are volunteers—alumni, present and former faculty and staff, and students—who encourage their representatives and senators to support the University of Utah in particular and higher education in general. Information about important issues and funding priorities affecting the University is given to hundreds of advocates before and during each legislative session. The advocates then call, write, visit, or email their legislators urging their support of those priorities. Read a summary of the University of Utah's successes in the 2017 session of the Utah Legislature here.

The U for Higher Ed Program offers a great way to stay connected to the U and to be involved in its future. Spread the word. We’re always looking for new advocates.

WANT TO ADVOCATE? MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! PARTICIPATE IN THE PROCESS!

The U for Higher Ed Program is a coalition of volunteers who share a commitment to the mission of the University of Utah. That mission is to serve the people of Utah and the world through the discovery, creation, and application of knowledge; through the dissemination of knowledge by teaching, publication, artistic presentation, and technology transfer; and through community engagement. Advocates work to further that mission and to help secure the University's financial future. The program is sponsored by the University of Utah Alumni Association and Office of Government Relations.
