Advocacy Student Organizations

Anti Solitary Rally

Student organizations provide undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to put their ideas into action. The Pace Center for Civic Engagement recognizes a wide range of advocacy organizations. An advocacy organization is a group of students who have come together, in the spirit of civic engagement, to lead and advocate on behalf of a social issue, and which may or may not incorporate a service component and/or a community partner to move their ideas into action. From advocating for prison education reform, to building a community around social entrepreneurship, to organizing to ensure fair and adequate health care, student organizations tackle a wide array of societal issues that affect our local and global communities. Student organization recognition signifies that the organization has been reviewed, approved, and is now sponsored by the Pace Center.

A list of advocacy organizations recognized and supported by the Pace Center is provided below. If you don’t see an organization that meets your interests, you can consider proposing and establishing a new advocacy organization. New advocacy organizations can be proposed by undergraduate and/or graduate students. To propose a new group, complete and submit the New Service Group Proposal Form. Questions about proposed and current advocacy student organizations should be addressed to  Elsie Sheidler, the staff advisor for advocacy student organizations.
