What we’ve done so far:

  • Represented student interests as part of the Housing Study Steering Committee and specific working groups exploring renovations to Henle and Alumni Square

  • Worked with the Office of Residential Living and Campus Ministry to encourage Chaplains in Residence to send supportive and informational emails to their residents in response to traumatic national or international events that particularly impact students of certain identities or backgrounds

  • “Saved” Brown House from being converted into an administrator’s residence

  • Secured individual $50 payments from the Office of Residential Living to every resident of Henle Village in order to compensate for major hot water issues in February

  • Worked with the GUSA LGBTQ Inclusivity Team on a proposal for a new Living and Learning Community titled “Crossroads: Gender and Sexuality”

What we’re prioritizing for the rest of our term:

  • Pushing back against potential long-term plans to convert student-occupied townhouses into faculty residences

  • Working with administrators to publish a multi-year timeline for renovating residence halls

  • Amplifying student concerns with the facilities work request system and advocating for improvements in the speed and quality of responses to work requests
