#40DaysofUMass: Day 21

Get to know the Academic and Advocacy Councils and The Student Government Association!
The Academic Council has demonstrated exceptional commitment to the pursuit of knowledge and development of leadership. They nourish intellectual exploration and growth outside of the classroom.
The Advocacy Council successfully plans and executes events that align with its mission and values corresponding to advocacy and inclusion. They make efforts to raise awareness surrounding their topic by creating safe spaces for dialogue and action.
The Student Government Association is the voice of the student body and represents student concerns to the UMass Administration. SGA works directly with administration to influence and change campus policy and effectively allocate $2 million to registered student organizations (RSOs).
