Dharla TorresCampus- Wide Senator 2016-11-21Community Advising Network The purpose of this project is to expand the currently offered counseling and psychological services offered on campus to include a culturally specific counseling services at UCSD. Currently, Dr. Catherine Thompson and Dr. Hercilia Corona are among the three only culturally specific counselors at UCSD, as the third is currently on maternity leave. Dr. Thompson focuses her efforts on helping communities of color at the Cross Cultural Center, black students, bi-/ multi-cultural students, LGBTQ identifying students, and womxn on campus, while Dr. Corona focuses on helping Chicanx/ Latinx students at UCSD. The idea is to provide a culturally specific counselor to better serve our communities of color on campus; this would include, but is not limited to, counseling specifically for Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and Undocumented students on campus. This program would be modeled after the already implemented CAN (community advising network) program at UC Davis. View

Liza Lukasheva and Angelica SaavedraSixth College Senators2015-02-20Love UCSDOften students get caught up in their school work and their busy lives and forget about the little things with our LOVE UCSD event we wanted to remind people why they love this school. There are so many things to love about this campus and so many things to be thankful for. While students thought about what they loved about UCSD we also asked how they contribute and give back to UCSD by being involved, achieving their dreams, or being the change. They made cute Polaroid looking pictures with a description of how they give back. We plan on having a repeat event of this later next quarter and to post the picture that were made in Price Center for students to see and be inspired!View
Jessica KimFirst Year Senator2015-02-13Valentine's Day Photo BoothValentine's Day Photo Booth was an event geared towards motivating school spirit and exposing First Year Council to UCSD students. To add some pizazz to the event we incorporated the spirit of Valentine's Day. We decorated the Sun God Statue on Sun God Lawn with embellishments and Valentine's Day balloons so that students could have a chance to get to know what FYC does and take home a hip polaroid of them and their friends under the statue. We also had a kissing booth (with Hershey's Kisses) and gave out Krispy Kreme donuts because who doesn't love some extra sweets? All in all, it was a great success and FYC was able to meet a lot of new faces! View
Joey Giltner, Adilene Rodriguez, Angie AguilarCampus-Wide Senators and Physical Science Senator2015-02-10Sex, Gender and Sexuality... It's ComplicatedThis event is tailored to expose students to the whole idea of intersectionality. An individual is such a complicated human being. Intersectionality (or intersectionalism) is the study of intersections between forms or systems of oppression, domination or discrimination. So in order to educate the campus-wide population about this idea, we are having a workshop with two different topics. First is Be A Man, Act Like A Lady. Ever been told to “man up” or “be a lady”? This interactive workshop explores what we are taught about gender and how that connects to stereotypes, as well as our own biases. Second is on Gender and Sexuality 101. This will go into details about what is offensive, what is not, etc. Overall this topic will educate on why we encourage using gender-neutral language. We learned more about the dialogue revolving around the sometime taboo topics of consent and rape culture on college campuses as well as diving deep into what we are taught about gender, consequences of stepping outside of the lines, and strategies to move beyond limiting expectations!!!View
