UM System Lobby Day A Success

The University of Missouri- Kansas City’s student newspaper, the UNews, wrote an article centering around the legislative priorities of ASUM. Students from UMKC were involved in UM Student Lobby Day on March 6th.

“UMKC students from the Associated Students of the University of Missouri (ASUM) traveled to Jefferson City last Tuesday to lobby on behalf of their fellow students.

This group included Caleb Michael-Files, Jasmine Heitz, Elizabeth Brown, Amanda Morris and ASUM photojournalist Manon Ibrahim. Assistant Dean of Students Eric Grospitch accompanied the group.

There were four issues on the table the students were lobbying: S.T.E.M. initiatives, voting rights for the University of Missouri system student curator, budget cuts to higher education and tenant and landlord issues.”
