Government and Community Relations


Advocates who engage with elected representatives to advance the university’s work make a positive difference. Legislators want to hear from their constituents.

Become a USC Advocate

Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends can have an active role in the university’s future. USC advocates share the vital role in fostering both our state’s and residents’ economic well-being.

Get Involved

Knowing and interacting with elected representatives is crucial for effective civic engagement. Understanding their positions and priorities enables you to advocate for policies that directly impact your community  – including the university – and ensure that your concerns are heard at the state level.
