The primary goal of The Legislative Affairs Committee is to advocate for a safe, inclusive, and empowering experience for the CU Anschutz student body. The committee strives to obtain and relay pertinent legislative information to students of the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus. This information may vary in scope from local, state, and national levels. This committee organizes campus events, including the new A Senate Sit Down series, in which events are offered covering topics of relevance and importance to the student body. All students are encouraged to speak with their Student Senators for detailed information on Legislative Affairs Committee events for the coming year
