Conference Theme: Taking Charge of Our Change
Students have been leading movements for change for decades and globally we are at a point in time where so much is at stake. 2016 marks a huge election year for the US and it’s the first election year in decades where the cost of higher education is a topic for presidential candidates. We’ve witnessed that when students are engaged and turning out to vote, elected officials take note and deliver on promises to prioritize our issues. We must continue to build our movements and hone our skills to push our issues to the top. We need to remind legislators that the student population matters and there are very real issues surrounding higher education, from tuition inequity to social injustice. It is time for legislators to know that students are committed to the advancement of our society and are ready to take charge of the change we need.
