Committee Description

The External Affairs Committee is responsible for issues outside of the University campus including all local, state, and national matters. We represent student opinion through relationships with leaders from the Connecticut General Assembly and the Town of Mansfield, among others. Our members work to help preserve state funding for institutions of higher education, keep the cost of a UConn education affordable, help students exercise their voting rights, and maintain a positive relationship with the surrounding community. We also collaborate with student governments at other universities throughout Connecticut.

Meeting times

Fridays, 3:00pm-4:00pm, in the SOC Conference Room (SU 219D).
The External Affairs Committee meets once a week throughout the Fall and Spring semesters.
