 As School of Education Representative, Anthony will strive for 3 main goals: fostering cross-communication and community building among School of Education programs, equitable resource distribution namely in the facilities upkeep/improvements for the schools and colleges, and a larger goal of data transparency in student aggregate data at the university level. These goals hit home for him as he sees how much School of Ed students do with less than most programs and camaraderie we can foster around our passion for education.

MaritaKy.png

Marita wants to reform the University's SafeRide service due to its limited availability by working on an initiative to have the University partner with Uber or Lyft to subsidize and provide a more accessible and reliable transportation service at night because not every student can afford to order services like Uber or Lyft. This initiative ensures that every student will have an actual SAFE ride regardless of their economic background. Another issue she wants to work on is to make eco-friendly menstrual products accessible and for free in all restrooms in the University to be inclusive of all gender identities.

 Rahil has been always found it necessary for administrations and governments to update themselves to modern norms of the society it governs. For him that often means making Michigan a more sustainable campus in energy and water, making events, buildings and study rooms more accessible through modern technology, and improving the mental health of campus through CAPS reform and therapy animals. This would make the University both an efficient campus and a university with happier and healthier people on its campus.

 Rohan is highly interested in alleviating the negative stigma surrounding the Ross Business School in order to promote more interdisciplinary engagements. There is no reason that the LSA, engineering, and business schools should be so segregated, when only benefits lay in the intersections of these fields. He hopes to encourage the forming of more diverse teams and clubs that mirror the dynamics of the world that lies beyond the University.

 In his second year on the assembly, Zeke would like to focus on improving two university systems that affect engineering students in a large way: busing to north campus and CSG elections. He believes that student input is key for the department of logistics, transportation, and parking to succeed in their promised redesign of the busing system. To allow this type of continuous and consistent communication between CSG and the university administration on all issues, he would like to amend the elections code to further eliminate time-based restrictions on campaigning.
