COLLINSVILLE, Ill. – Recognizing the pandemic-related challenges facing higher education, state Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, is hosting a virtual Citizens’ Advisory Committee meeting for college students on Thursday, Feb. 25 from 6 to 7 p.m. Those who wish to attend can email to register and receive a Zoom link.

“COVID has impacted everyone’s life in some way, and this is especially true for college students,” said Stuart. “I want local students to have an opportunity for a conversation specifically around issues of funding and the impact of COVID-19 on higher education. This event is also an opportunity for us to discuss my legislative goals as chair of the House Higher Education Committee.”

Stuart regularly hosts Citizens’ Advisory Committees on various topics for residents to discuss relevant issues and legislative feedback. All local college students are encouraged to attend on Feb. 25 to share their perspective on the issues facing students and higher education institutions, both as a result of the pandemic and more generally.

“As colleges and universities emerge from the pandemic, I want to make sure students have a say in what their education will look like in the coming years,” continued Stuart. “I encourage local students to attend this event and share their questions and ideas about the future of higher education.”
