UPUA Joins Pennsylvania Association of State-Related Students To Combat Budget Stalemate
The University Park Undergraduate Association is teaming up with schools around the Commonwealth to re-establish the Pennsylvania Association of State-Related Students (PASS).
“The purpose of PASS was to represent more than 100,000 students at state-related institutions to the legislature through advocacy and legislative outreach,” the resolution at Wednesday’s meeting read. The resolution, which will re-establish PASS in light of recent state budget issues, passed unanimously.
The assembly also passed a resolution, which was a call to action for students to take including a social media campaign and by writing letters. “This is something that has the potential to be really big so when you vote on this I encourage you to think of that,” President Emily McDonald said.
UPUA wasted no time getting down to business Thursday morning, and they mailed a letter (see below) to Governor Tom Wolf and state representatives. Later they launched their social media campaign using the hashtag #PassIt.
