Legislative Affairs Attended Virginia21 Meeting | UVA Student Council

Two Legislative Affairs Committee members attended the Virginia21 Student Leadership Committee Meeting on Saturday. Many other schools’ student government representatives attended, including George Mason, Virginia Tech, and VCU. The focus of the meeting was on lobbying ideas for issues facing different schools. Some of the topics mentioned were: lowering textbook costs, handling rising class sizes, the “Grow by Degrees” campaign of the Virginia Business Higher Education Council. The representatives all are looking forward to working with each other this year and lobbying effectively to improve higher education.
