Our nation was founded by citizen legislators. In fact, Indiana’s General Assembly still operates as a “part-time legislature” as a way to preserve this rich history of grass roots representation. Members have diverse backgrounds who come together from their communities to represent their communities, helping guide decisions for the greatest good.
Boiler 100, a university advocacy program, is a select grassroots organization with the goal of helping legislators understand what people around the state want for Purdue University from their government. Volunteers are educated about important higher education issues and asked to get involved at certain times throughout the legislative process.
If you are interested in advocating for Purdue and willing to contact policy makers, please contact us for more information.
