What are you voting for when you support me?

  • A Plan:

Lobbying the Vice Provost Office to Decrease the Volatility of Community Center Funding:
Community Center Funding is the responsibility of the Vice Provost Office and is currently treated discretionarily. I am committed to rallying students and pressuring the administration into allocating funds sustainably.

Facilitating the Potential Transition from Use of the Campus Climate Survey to a more Data-Driven Method: Stanford may replace the Campus Climate Survey with a more comprehensive survey called the AAU next year. This is the ideal time to pressure the administration into asking questions that will allow more data to be gathered -- especially regarding the unique ways in which sexual assault impacts queer communities and communities of color so that targeted programming and support systems can be developed.

Streamlining funding pools: The ASSU, Vice Provost Office, and University donors support student groups in different capacities. The rules governing the contributions of each are inconsistent with one another. I aim to lay the groundwork so that in the future funding processes are standardized so that the aid Stanford can offer is more readily available and visible.
