Legislative Committees

Legislative Committees are subdivisions of the General Assembly tasked with creating legislation. The UPUA maintains five standing committees. The Academic Affairs Committee serves as a forum to focus student concerns regarding academia and undergraduate education. The Facilities Committee serves to better campus life for all students, specifically in regards to University facilities and structures located at University Park. The Governmental Affairs Committee oversees all matters pertaining to advocacy and relations to the government and the Penn State Board of Trustees. The Justice and Equity Committee is the UPUA’s newest Committee, and carries all legislation related to those topics.
