Inform Your Legislator

It is now time to reach out to your elected officials, both local and at the state level.  Please let them know how the proposed regulations will impact your school.


Invite your local legislator to 

your school for a tour or for a graduation.  


There is no better way to showcase your institution's importance to the community to a member of the Massachusetts Legislature than hosting a campus tour. Legislators are always eager to touch base with the people in their districts, and welcome the opportunity to spend time with the constituents whose interests they represent at the State House. 
To learn more about setting up a campus tour check click here for APSCU's advocacy assistance.
