The Community and Governmental Relations Committee serves as the conduit between University of Pittsburgh Students, the Pittsburgh Community, and local, state, and federal Government. We advocate for students on issues ranging from state and federal education funding to local community interactions and engagement. We take a large role in campus voter registration efforts, and also coordinate student participation in Pitt Day in Harrisburg, the Pitt community’s largest annual lobbying effort. Back in Oakland, we put on events aiming to increase student interest in local politics and community issues. Our new event, Pitt Community Forum, brings together community leaders and Pitt students to create a conversation on student issues.
The Community and Governmental Relations Committee meets Tuesdays from 6-7pm in WPU 918.
