The Governmental Relations Student Advisory Committee is a group composed of student leaders from Old Dominion University. The key objective of this committee is to provide an opportunity for communication between students and government officials regarding issues which are important to the University and student body. These students take a proactive role in advocating for the university. This includes organizing an annual bus trip to Richmond where students meet with legislators and letter writing campaigns to the Governor and other legislators concerning budgetary issues and legislation. The group is advised by Elizabeth Kersey, Assistant to the President for Local, State and Federal Government Relations and Don Stansberry, Dean of Students.
