My goals as Internal Vice President:

Work with AS staff to create an AS smartphone application that easily displays all AS events, entities, resources, and use of student fees.

Ensure that ALL Senators are fully trained on the Association and what is expected of them as Senators. Senators will be held accountable through mandatory one on one meetings with me each quarter. With the help of my Campus Visibility Director, I will revitalize public forum by standardizing its time and publicizing how/why students should come speak to their representatives. I will make sure the Parliamentarian I appoint imposes legal code within the Senate in a fair and consistent manner.

Allocate a portion of AS’s budget to provide students with a subscription to the app Headspace, which instructs meditation exercises. In addition, I will have a designated CAPS staff member for AS and the Senate.

Create an AS School Supply Bank that provides free supplies to students year round.

Help students store their things between spring quarter and summer sessions by turning unused campus spaces into storage units.

Enforce a timely distribution of honoraria to those who earn it within AS and ensure that the Finance and Business Committee sustainably allocates funds.


Publish quarterly reports on how your student fees are being spent and gain feedback to ensure your student fees are being spent responsibly.


Collaborate with AS Entities and other campus organizations to host a quarterly Craft Far infusing the association with a more diverse group of student leaders to create a better atmosphere of productivity within AS.


Create senate staff positions to provide more opportunities for people to get involved in AS and enhance productivity, efficiently and transparency within Senate.
