Environmental Science and Mathematical Economics

 

Goals for the Year

1. I want to improve students understanding of how the state and the federal government play a role in shaping their education. I personally feel that there are misunderstandings in what role government plays in student issues. With this, I also think the more that students know and comprehend this relationship the more they will care about civic engagement and playing a larger role in the dialogue in student issues.

2. Play a role in having legislative victories for students. I among many others I plan to work very hard to lobby and influence legislators and many departments to help students in many ways. This could look like tuition freezes or buy downs, increased Oregon Opportunity Grant Funding, accessibility and ADA improvements on campus, supporting more green initiatives, improved economic condition for better job markets, expansion of medical amnesty policy, LGBTQ issues equity and support, and many other issues that will come up during this year's long legislative session.

3. I want to work to build relationships across campus on issues networks. Many groups and institutions across campus have often similar concerns and issues to ASOSU and other groups on campus. I want to work to connect these groups and increase our voice on issues in government. This could be through departments, cultural centers, clubs, and many other groups and centers on campus.
