Lobby Day/Student Advocacy Day, October 2015

Students from the University of Illinois joined college students from other public universities across the state to highlight the important issues affecting them and their universities during Illinois Public University Student Advocacy Day on October 20.

U of I President Timothy Killeen and UIS student trustee Dominique Wilson also participated and were joined by former UIS student trustee Hannah Cave and former UIC student trustee Danielle Leibowitz.

Students representing all three U of I campuses gathered in Springfield and walked as a group to the Capitol for meetings with legislators from each student's home district. Among the topics discussed: the proposed reduction in the university's state budget and the lack of funding for MAP Grants.
