What are some goals and/or initiatives you are excited to work on this term?: As a part of this administration, I am most passionate about working to help, support, and be a voice for students with disabilities. It is my goal to work directly with students with disabilities, especially in the UI REACH program, so that they feel welcome and included on campus and have a great college experience. Another goal I have is to plan multicultural events so the undergraduate student body learns more about the nationalities and cultures of their peers. As a Big Ten college, I think it is important that students learn about diversity while living at a diverse and unique university.
