Hi ERC & UCSD! My name is Sean Monroe, and I use pronouns He/Him/His. My role as one of the AS college senators representing ERC is to voice the concerns and opinions of ERC students to Associated Students and other all-campus committees and organizations.

As a student, I am a second year with a double major in Political Science-International Relations and Public health as well as a minor in Human Rights. I am always available to talk over email and facebook. I also have office hours every week which are posted on my personal and senator facebook pages.

Outreach Hour

I held my outreach hour on the second floor of Price Center East, near The Loft. I had one constituent visit, and we talked about parking restrictions on campus and the Mental Health fee referenda which gave me good input that I can use while voting on the initial referenda language during the 1/15/20 Senate meeting.

Senator Project Updates

 

Currently, I am working with the Director of Finance and Student Fees Advisory Committee representative from the Student Council of ERC (SCERC) to put on a program called Fun-d with Fees where we hope to provide helpful information about current student fees and their uses as well as potential upcoming referenda. This event will have food, games and giveways! It will be happening Wednesday of Week 7 on the ERC Green.

Internal Committee

 

In Legislative Committee, we approved appointments and finished drafting the language for an AS resolution on sustainability practices in Associated Students which we hope to pass in Legislative Committee and/or Senate for the 1/15/20 meetings.

External Committee

 

In the Student Council of ERC, we are working on updating our elections code and have been planning several projects. We have multiple events for Spirit Week 1/13-1/16, and we encourage everyone to participate in ERC events as well as Spirit night on 1/16/20 in RIMAC!

Summary

If you would like to give input or ask questions on anything talked about above or anything else of interest/concern to you, please reach out to me on the ERC Senators Facebook page or through my email (found on as.ucsd.edu in the roster section).

This week I will be finalizing my budget along with my collaborators in SCERC, so we will be able to finish planning logistics and making final orders next week.

In the Legislative Committee, we reviewed the proposed language for the CAPS Mental Health Fee referenda and decided to discharge the item to the Senate in order to let the entirety of AS Senate discuss the language.

This week, our SCERC meeting was held virtually in order to let the council attend Spirit Night, so next week I will be bringing up discussion items in my report for both week 2 and week 3.

Summary

This week, I spent most of my council related time compiling information and reports, and disseminated them to the groups I help represent along with my co-senator.
