From Sifat Reazi, VP External:
It’s been a exciting and productive start to the quarter. We’ve begun the year meeting with administrators motivated to assist students and work on grad issues. With UCSA we have developed this year’s grad agenda–on which we’ve already made progress. These issues are diverse and salient; from access to affordable/dignified housing to healthy faculty/advisor relationships. We have a dedicated team of student leaders from each UC campus advocating these on these issues, and so I am excited about the work to be done. You can find the complete 2015-2016 Grad Agenda here.
On campus, we’re eager to advance our conversations about the unique challenges that Masters/Professional student faces. We have made headway on this front and will keep you informed on the progress moving forward.
Considering the strides we have made in such a short time, I am enthusiastic and optimistic about the year to come.
If you have ideas (or even anecdotes) relevant to any of these topics, reach out to AGS!
Until the next update, good luck with midterms/finals, and of course #zotOn.
