Student Advocacy Day

Student Advocacy Day 2018

Every February, hundreds of community college students from across Maryland board buses and head for Annapolis. They come to advocate for strong state support of the community college mission ⇒ providing affordable access to quality higher education, and preparing the workforce for the careers that keep Maryland businesses, schools, emergency services, and infrastructure running every day.

Students apply to be part of their college’s Advocacy Day delegation, and the competition can be tough. Selected students meet face-to-face with elected officials and share personal stories about ways community college has empowered their futures.
