About PAC

The Tunxis Political Awareness Club is an official campus organization approved by the Student Government Association. Its purpose is to bring civil discourse and multiple points of view to our political culture. In a polarized nation such as ours, educational institutions have a responsibility to instill the ideals of mutual respect, cooperation, and civility in our student body. This is done by having meetings, hosting forums, and creating podcasts. Club officers and members include:

Kevin Short–Vice-President

Mike Farnan–Treasurer

Chris Amaya

Jesse Gutaukas

Ajay Varghete
