External Affairs Committee

The External Affairs Committee, led by Sean Dunn, is responsible for carrying out USG's advocacy efforts pertaining to student political engagement, sustainability, community service, and public policy at the local, state, and federal levels. 

In recent years, our Committee:

  • Organized student-led efforts at the Connecticut State Capitol in Hartford to preserve 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
