Who can become an advocate?
Anyone with an interest in the University of South Carolina can become
an advocate. Our network includes alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and
friends of the university. Becoming an advocate for Carolina means that you are
taking an active part in letting our elected officials know how you feel
about selected legislative issues.
What do advocates do?
Our advocates are a network of volunteers who work together to increase
awareness regarding particular legislative issues. Advocates communicate
with elected officials in various ways including e-mails, letters,
phone calls, and personal visits. My Carolina simply communicates with
the advocates whenever we need support in contacting legislators on
particular issues of interest to the University of South Carolina.
What is required?
Becoming an advocate can take as little
or as much time as you have to give. We will notify you whenever particular legislative issues arise, and you will
simply contact your particular legislators by using a pre-written e-mail
message or your own, by calling their office, or by meeting in person.
No meetings or membership fees are required; however, we invite you to
consider becoming a member of My Carolina Alumni Association if you
