1. Bolstering civic engagement and awareness about important issues among students, especially problems caused by big money interests in the politics.
We particularly focus on the role that big money PACs and individuals have in shaping higher education funding and policy in North Carolina, since all of our campuses are members of the UNC system.
2. Converting interest into action by offering students as many ways as possible to speak out on these issues
Students will have opportunities to intersect with their lawmakers and the media, as well as numerous other policymakers and opinion shapers, over the course of the spring.
