The UMass Amherst Advocacy Network is an active network of alumni, students, parents, present and former faculty and staff, and friends of the university who share a commitment to public higher education and UMass Amherst. Advocates make regular contact with elected officials to help raise awareness about legislative and policy issues affecting higher education.

It is important for legislators to hear from constituents who can speak from experience about the value of UMass Amherst and its impact throughout the Commonwealth. There are many opportunities to be involved to the extent that you wish. We appreciate every level of effort!
