External Affairs Committee

The External Affairs Committee is the body for strategic thinking and public policy matters on behalf of the Undergraduate Student Government. We represent Connecticut’s flagship public university at the local, state, and national levels-- maintaining a strong commitment to positive, working relationships with student leaders and dedicated lawmakers alike.

In recent years, our Committee:

  • Organized student-led efforts at the Connecticut State Capitol in Hartford for preserving state contributions to the University of Connecticut budget
  • Founded the “HuskyEngage Summit” for undergraduate students, aimed at facilitating conversations with statewide leaders on student issues
  • Testified before members of the Connecticut General Assembly on laws affecting student life and access to election registration
