Students campaign for higher education funding in Montgomery

On Thursday, Feb. 23, approximately 60 UM students traveled to Alabama’s state capitol alongside representatives from 13 of the state’s other public universities demonstrating the need for more funding for higher education.

 

According to Jenny Bell, director of Student Life, the University had the largest Higher Ed Day participation in three years thanks to faculty support and encouragement.

 

“I believe now more than ever students are feeling the pressure to make their voices heard,” said Abigail Rothfeldt, the SGA’s Higher Ed Day coordinator. “It has been such a privilege to organize students to stand up for something they feel personally convicted about.”
