Follow us: @marypirghealth

Public health is an integral part of all of our lives, as highlighted by the public health efforts taken during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to raise awareness of public health issues such as a lack of accessibility on campus, as well as work with other organizations to advocate for measures that make campus accessible for all.

Affordable Textbooks

Coordinator: Evelyn Reidy
Email: [email protected]

We are focused on the burden and stress exorbitant textbooks prices create for students. Our main goal is financial transparency regarding textbook costs so students have time to budget and plan before classes begin. Additionally, we hope to increase resources for students to handle the costs, as well as bring awareness to how high prices can create unequal barriers to education.

New Voters Project

We believe that the full participation of young people in the political process is essential to a truly representative, vibrant democracy. Together young people have the power to elect the next generation of leaders who will fight for our shared vision of the future, but only if we vote. MaryPIRG’s New Voters Project works to activate the largest voting group in the country. Through tabling, text and phone banking, online outreach, and more we work to make sure every student has the opportunity to have their voice heard in our elections.
