As student advocates, we raise our voice at the administrators and governments. The Proposal and Statements are the methods, we use to raise our voice. Most of our proposals are backed with surveys and petitions. Our proposals fall from nowhere. We take up issue matters to students-at-large. The Collegiate Congress, have taken an initiative to come to terms with organizations committed to building a better community. In this regard, we have reached out to the like-minded organization to prepare policies and proposals to the legislatures and to institutions to better the lives of students and youth.

Proposal To The Mayor of New York for Youth/Student Activism on Campus
This proposal aims to promote the participation of students and young adults in sociopolitical activism. While our democracy turns 241 years old this year, political fragmentation and disillusionment can feel endemic, particularly among the youth who will someday occupy elected positions and make up an ever-larger share of the voting population. Collegiate Congress formed a nonpartisan coalition of youth political organizations – Democrat, Republican, and unaffiliated – to find a common ground and promote engagement. Our coalition is the most vocal actor in fostering this collaboration among the student population of New York City, towards common ends and with a shared motivation. One of the ways we do this is to increase participation in campus student government elections and club activities. This early form of activism has had a proven effect on civic engagement later on in life. With this worth goal in mind we submit our proposal to the New York City Council and the Mayor of New York City through Honorable Councilwoman Inez Barron, Chairman of Higher Education within the New York City Council.
