Each year, Government Affairs participates in a variety of activities to increase on-campus political engagement and open discussion with local and state elected officials. In past years, the committee has traveled to Nashville and discussed university and student concerns and even had the opportunity to sit in on the governor’s State of the State Address. Government Affairs has hosted a variety of forums, debates, and voter registration drives. In the past, the Government Affairs committee has advocated for the student body in Nashville regarding a wide variety of issues including student fees, HOPE requirements, and capital funding projects. In this exciting election year, we are seeking to increase voter participation and continue our civility campaign amongst all members of our campus.
