Legislative Priorities

The Office of Governmental Affairs oversees an annual process to establish state and federal legislative priorities. This process includes campus-wide input to the priorities committee, which is comprised of the president, the provost, the vice president for research and the vice president for economic development. This process serves to ensure that the work of Governmental Affairs is focused on issues that best serve the University and that these efforts are enhanced by this process of coordination.
