Government Relations & Community Affairs
The Office of Government Relations and Community Affairs serves as a liaison between Georgia Regents University (GRU) and Georgia Regents Health System, the community, and local, state and federal officials. We advocate and leverage productive relationships to build partnerships and the support of public policy makers and the community in order to further the full mission of Georgia Regents University, as an integrated academic health center. The office also works with state and federal legislators and agencies to introduce legislation or regulations that would enhance our missions and operations. The office enlists alumni, faculty, and students to serve as advocates for the University and Health System with the Georgia General Assembly and the United States Congress regarding issues of importance to GRU, academic health centers and higher education.
