Policies and SSU’s Elected Officials

Legislative and Lobbying Activity: Policies

One of the primary functions of SSU Governmental Relations is to interact with our locally elected officials on policies that are important to the University's mission.  That mission's center is the student body. Much of the relationship between each city and Sonoma County around Sonoma State University concerns housing and student interactions in our regional communities. At the state and federal level, most policies are centered on budget or education code issues, including infrastructure funding and the path to graduation for all students.

Local Delegations

Sonoma County

Sonoma State University and the County of Sonoma have a long history of collaboration and partnership.  SSU lies on the border of the incorporated cities of Rohnert Park and Cotati, is at the northern edge if Penngrove and surrounded to east by the unincorprated county otherwise.  For these reasons, the County of Sonoma and its Board of Supervisors are important partners.
