My job is to be the bridge between students and faculty along with parts of administration. I have to distill the needs of the most systemically oppressed student communities into tangible change within the bureaucracy of shared governance.

 

Favorite part of working for the ASUW?
My favorite part of working for ASUW is feeling like I’m apart of something bigger than myself. Knowing I’m apart of a legacy students who have seen the problems of this institution and ran towards them.
