Lobby Corps meets every Thursday at 7:00 PM, in State Street Room of the UCEN. (Winter 2019)
Hey UCSB! Welcome to the new website of UCSB Associated Students Lobby Corps. We are beyond excited to serve as your co-chairs during the 2018-2019 academic year. We see an enormous amount of potential in our student body’s ability to shape public policy in ways that reflect the UCSB community’s unique, innovative, and forward thinking nature.
Lobby Corps is a unit of UCSB Associated Students that strives to unite activism, professionalism, and strategic planning to advocate for student needs. We research, analyze, and advocate for – or against – local, state, and national legislation, programs, and policy. We harness the student voice to influence decision makers from Isla Vista to the halls of Congress. Both of us are well versed in the political decision-making process and are looking forward to bringing this experience to our roles as Co-Chairs.
This year, we are looking forward to doing big things. Some of our goals are assisting student groups through lobby workshops, fighting to expand student resources and lower tuition, and bring more lighting to Isla Vista.
If you are interested in joining our team during this crucial time for student interests, we encourage you to attend our general meetings or reach out by email. There is no prior experience required. You’ll have the opportunity to work with driven students and grow your network of professionals in the public and private sector.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us. We’re happy to get coffee and chat.
