Administrative History

The Public Interest Research Group is a national consumer organization that resulted from the consumer advocacy program of Ralph Nader. In 1975-76, efforts were made to form a local campus group, VaPIRG. However, the group existed only as a subcommittee of the Student Government Association. New efforts were initiated in 1980.
