Lawmakers listen when students speak out and share their stories.
More students than ever are now working alongside the University to build legislative support for the UC community at both the state and federal levels. The program brings together a dynamic group of students from across UC to represent student interests with government leaders. Student ambassadors help influence policies and budget decisions that impact UC and its students. They help lawmakers hear and understand the student point of view.
“If you want to make a change in the community around you, whether that's big or small, and if you want to meet other people who want to do the exact same thing, you should apply to this program.”
