Student Advocates

The Student Advocate Project was initiated Fall 2018 with the purpose of increasing student participation across campus. Students on this team are directly a part of the decision making process as members to campus wide committees. Student Advocates are also the leading team on assessment focused on gathering student feedback relating to student issues.

The Student Advocates are responsible for supporting the ASI Executives and Board of Directors by representing student interests on various campus-wide committees. The campus community can request a student to sit on a committee by clicking on the following: Student Leader Request
