[ Return to Standing Committees listing ]

The Lobby Committee gets involved in regional politics by addressing GPSA concerns in the New Mexico State Legislature. Not only do lobby committee members gain experience in running an active lobbying process, but the work of the committee can truly benefit the graduate and professional student community at UNM. Past lobby efforts have included a petition for low-income child care assistance for graduate/professional students, and the allocation of $100,000 for graduate student research, now administered as the Graduate Research Development (GRD) Grant.
