Office of Government Affairs
The Office of Government Affairs serves as JAVĿ¼'s liaison with elected officials at the federal, state, county, and municipal levels. It coordinates all government relations activity at the university, presenting a unified voice.
The Office also helps to identify connections between JAVĿ¼'s priorities and government funding opportunities. In support of this work, the Office seeks to strengthen JAVĿ¼'s relationship with membership organizations, including the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities (CICU) and the National Association for Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU).

Reporting Lobbying and Government Contact
