Feb. 4, 2020 LA GRANDE, Ore. – Students, faculty, staff, alumni and trustees from Eastern Oregon University will converge at the state capitol on Feb. 13 for a day of legislative engagement and advocacy in support of higher education.
All seven of Oregon’s public universities collaborate to hold University Day during the 2020 legislative session already underway in Salem.
“University Day is a critical effort where we partner with students to promote and support funding for higher education in Oregon,” said Tim Seydel, Vice President for University Advancement. “Each year our advocates connect with legislators and really make a difference in communicating the importance and impact of EOU in the state.”
Participants meet with state legislators, attend floor sessions of the House and Senate, connect with other statewide leaders, and present student and campus projects to increase EOU’s visibility.
“I’m excited to attend my fifth lobby day with EOU,” said Alex McHaddad, a recent alumnus who is consulting to organize the event. “Advocacy is all about telling stories, and for one of 35 days this legislative session, EOU student stories will be front and center in the capitol.”
Student travel is supported by the Associated Students of EOU and the program is coordinated with University Advancement. Faculty and staff are invited to attend as well. The bus leaves EOU on the afternoon of Feb. 12, and returns late on Feb. 13. Training sessions are scheduled for attendees on Feb. 5 and 10.
