Save the date and start spreading the word! Public Higher Education Advocacy Day at the State House will be March 5, 2013. This will be an opportunity for hundreds (thousands?) of students, staff, faculty, alumni and others to let legislators know what they can do to ensure accessible, high quality public higher education for the residents of Massachusetts.
More details will be forthcoming early in the new year, but start making plans to bring lots of people. As Prof. Katie McDermott from UMass Amherst said after attending last year, “It was inspiring to hear the students in our group explain the financial barriers they face. They are our best advocates for public higher education.”
