Become a Panther Advocate!

By: Alyssa Turcsak on Tue, 11/19/2013 - 09:56

Panther Advocates is a student led legislative informational group connecting students with their legislators. As Panther Advocates we provide local legislators a personal, first hand account about the benefits of attending our fine university. When Advocates meet with their legislator it’s a great opportunity to answer any of the legislators questions about the university.

Apply by clicking the link below. Informational training sessions will be held to help promote and prepare all Panther Advocates before they meet with their legislators.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Victoria Hurst, Director of Governmental Relations at hurstv@uni.edu.
