Alumni Advocacy

The Ohio State Advocates Program is part of The Ohio State University Alumni Association, Inc.  It works closely with the Office of Government Affairs to provide a support service to Ohio State by using 800+ volunteers to advocate the University's legislative position. The mission of the Ohio State Advocates Program is to engage, inform, and encourage alumni and friends of the University to communicate with members of the Ohio General Assembly and other elected officials regarding issues of importance to Ohio State and higher education.
