Your Campus Outlet for Politics

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 our Weekly Events, which consist of various state, national and international experts on given topics. Each semester, the Committee brings in a leading political figure as our spring or fall speaker. The results? A comprehensive political culture that everyone can participate in. PAC is all party, but non-partisan.
