The mission of the Gorilla Legislative Network is to organize, educate, and lead into
action a network of Pittsburg State University alumni, students, and friends residing in the state
of Kansas to communicate with state legislators and others the needs and issues at the University
regarding higher education legislation and to also advocate for the needs of higher education for
the state as a whole.
Members of the network will be updated regularly about issues facing higher education in
the state of Kansas and then will be called to action to contact local legislators when appropriate
to increase support of PSU at the state level. Members can also be trained on exactly who and
how to contact state decision-makers and organizations on behalf of PSU. Members will be able
to decide exactly the extent of their activity in the network.
