The Political Awareness Committee (PAC) is a branch of the Student Government Association responsible for facilitating, encouraging and growing campus political dialogue. We accomplish this mission through events presented in different formats such as concerts, lectures, workshops, and community engagement among other venues. Each semester, the Committee brings in leading figures in their respective fields to engage students in discourse based on relevant topics. The results? A comprehensive political culture that everyone can participate in. PAC is all party, but non-partisan.
Engage.-Participate in campus political dialogue with your fellow Oles. PAC is your outlet; make your voice heard.
Go Big.-PAC brings in the nation’s leading political figures and journalists each semester. Do not miss.
Weekly.-Learn and discuss political topics at our weekly dinner events. They are an exciting, simple way to maximize your Tuesday nights.
