Undergraduate Student Government Constituency Senators

According to the USG Bylaws, the USG Senate includes 8 seats for Constituency Senators that represent the following constituencies: Asian Pacific Islander Desi American, Black, International Student, LGBTQ+, Latinx, Disability, Native American, and Veteran. Each of these Senators sits on the Justice & Equity Committee, and serves in the USG Senate with the intent to organize programming, enact policies, and advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion that better serve and represent the unique needs of students from historically marginalized groups. The Justice & Equity Committee is lead by Ruth Kahssai (Director of J&E), Joycelyn Jorbedom (Independent Senator, Co-Chair of J&E), and Kaitlin Soriano (APIDA Constituency Senator, Co-Chair of J&E). Students may contact the Justice & Equity Committee leadership with any questions, comments, concerns, and/or grievances.
