What are some goals and/or initiatives you are excited to work on this term?: Expanding the BIONIC bus service is a top priority for me as it will enhance the accessibility of our campus for individuals with disabilities. Additionally, I am passionate about promoting education regarding the rights and responsibilities surrounding service dogs, aiming to foster a more inclusive environment where these animals are welcomed and understood. To further ensure accessibility, I plan to advocate for universal design principles to be incorporated into all campus events, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their abilities, can participate fully.
