A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability, including the issues, bills, and ordinances for or against which the institution has advocated:
This institution has a program in which every year students go to the state captiol to lobby for higher education. Although students are encouraged to lobby for any issue, the majority of the focus is on higher education. The event allows students to actively participate in politics, meet with representatives and network with alums.
Many of our students lobby for sustainability related issues such as clean energy, pipeline and fracking issues.
