Lobbying Efforts Focus on Tuition Assistance, Physical Therapy

January 27, 2015

As the Virginia General Assembly is in full swing, members of the Mary Baldwin University community traveled to Richmond recently to lobby on behalf of students and issues important to them.

Director of Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences physical therapy program Lisa Shoaf (front row, center) attended the Annual Virginia Physical Therapy Association Lobby Day at the Virginia General Assembly on January 21 accompanied by six students in Mary Baldwin’s charter class. The group was lobbying on behalf of a bill that would improve patient access to physical therapy services.

Several Mary Baldwin students traveled to Richmond with Vice President for Communication, Marketing, and Public Affairs Crista Cabe (far right) and Virginia Women’s Institutional Leadership (VWIL) Commandant Terry Djuric (far left) to thank state legislators (including Del. Richard P. Bell, center) for their support of the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant and to promote continued funding for VWIL. TAG grants provide all in-state students with $3,100 toward tuition for the 2014–15 academic year.
