Advocacy & Government Relations

PNACAC encourages its members to stay informed of current issues that impact our profession, our students, and access to higher education. As those who can give voice to our students and colleagues, PNACAC members are also strongly encouraged to engage their elected representatives by asking them to stand up for college access. Every member can make a difference!
