The Student Advocacy Coalition is now accepting applications! SAC is the only student organization officially housed within the University of Illinois Office of Government Relations. Over the last few years, SAC has asserted itself as a student voice in Springfield while advocating for higher education, University goals, and student interests. We also have become an incubator for the politically interested. As a non-partisan, student-run organization, we pride ourselves on giving members a one of kind introduction into the field of lobbying. Through our training seminars, speaker programs, and trips to Springfield, we hone skills and learn about issues all while supporting our University. There are also many leadership positions open and events like our upcoming Lobby Day to network with legislators and other leaders. Please email studentadvocacy.uiuc@gmail.com with any questions. Application can be found at https://sacurbana.weebly.com/recruitment.html  and is due by midnight on January 29th, 2020.
