Candidate Statement

Hello fellow Aggies!

My name is Chucha. I'm a third year readmitted student studying Psychology and Chican@ Studies, and I'm running for ASUCD Senate with the SMART Slate, which seeks to give a voice in ASUCD to underrepresented communites on campus. I hope to be that voice, as well as an advocate for a better quality education for all Aggies alike.

Platforms:

QUARTERLY PERFORMANCE NIGHT

I am constantly amazed by all the wonderful talent UC Davis students bring to our campus. As a Senator, I will create a quarterly performance night for student performance groups and individual students to showcase their talents. I believe that the arts enhance the student experience on campus and can be a fun and educational way to expose students to a side of Davis they might not have a chance to experience elsewhere. I also hope that this will provide a space for student performers to gain exposure and further their endeavors.

FACILITATE READMISSION PROCESS FOR STUDENTS ON DISMISSAL AND WITHDRAWAL STATUS

I will create an ASUCD webpage that outlines the process of readmission for students and provides resources so that they can continue their studies at UC Davis. As a student that has gone through the complex, bureaucratic process of readmission, I know firsthand how frustrating this process can be. Every student is faced with unique circumstances, and I want to develop a one-stop comprehensive guide for all students to have the opportunity to complete their education with their fellow Aggies!

Together, the SMART Slate will work towards the following:

MORE TEXTBOOK RESERVES

We will work to save students money by creating a textbook reserve located in the new Student Community Center, supplementing the Shields Library Reserves and giving students much-needed additional study space with free access to the most common GE books.

FUNDING FOR ETHNIC/LAV GRADS

Community specific graduations celebrate the achievement in higher education of students from underrepresented and marginalized communities. By granting funds to these events we seek to actively create a safe and inclusive campus environment which celebrates the diversity of our student body.

VOTE CHUCHA (JOSE) MARQUEZ #1 FOR ASUCD SENATE, SMART #2-6! BREE ROMBI AND AMY MARTIN FOR EXEC!
