Hello and welcome back to campus! We would like to take a moment to update you on events and activities happening at NYPIRG. For those of you may be unfamiliar with us, NYPIRG, the New York Public Interest Research Group, is the state’s largest and most effective student-directed organization on 20 college campuses across the state. For the past 40 years, NYPIRG has built student power through grassroots organizing and advocacy, public education and offering students countless opportunities to become civically engaged members of the campus, off-campus and in the community to develop the skills needed to become effective student activists. As the returning Project Coordinator for SUNY New Paltz’s chapter of NYPIRG, I urge every member of the campus community to help build student power by attending our Higher Education Day of Action. On Wednesday, Feb. 26, NYPIRG will be bringing students from across that state to head to our state capitol to meet with lawmakers and demand that they invest in access to higher education.
To learn more about Higher Education Action Day and all of our other campaigns including Environmental Protection, Hunger and Homelessness Outreach, and Consumer Protection, stop by our Student Action Meeting: Wednesday, Feb. 19, at 6 p.m., in Student Union Building 401/405.
Have a great semester!
NYPIRG Project Coordinator
