Weekly Reports

Week Summary

This is a test report to ensure that Weekly Reports are working without any issues. This report will be edited as we troubleshoot the issues.

Senator Projects

  • I've met with Senator Cheng and Senator Quiroa to continue discussing ways to improve communication within AS. After consulting Assistant Director Weng, we decided the two best platforms for us to explore would be Slack and Microsoft Teams. We drafted a list of pros and cons for each platform and presented them to Senate, asking for feedback on how we should proceed. We also created two prototype channels on Slack and Teams and began testing to see if both platforms would be viable. The plan is to pick a platform by the end of Week 3 and begin the onboarding process soon (and create a short tutorial/guide on how the selected platform can be used).

Outreach Hour

The campus wide senators and I are planning to roll out office hours every week on Friday from 1pm to 2pm. We are discussing the possibility of holding permanent office hours and will be requesting a media plan from the Graphics Studio if we do. For now, here is the link to our office hours: https://ucsd.zoom.us/j/94538212185

Senator Project Updates

  • Senator Cheng and I finalized our plans to improve communication within the Senate. By the time of this report, we have invited all members of the Assembly (along with Staff) to Microsoft Teams. We have drafted a tutorial/expectations guide for the platform and plan to announce our onboarding process next week. 

  • I met with Carlos, our contact from ITS, regarding the AS website. We discussed possible plans on how to improve the website and make AS activity more transparent. Currently, we are focusing on improving the project portion of the website ("Senator Projects" under the "Assembly" tab). At the time of this report, senators are able to submit their Senator Project to the system but cannot publish it to the public. I will be submitting an amendment to our bylaws next week to introduce mandates for senators to submit their project budget,description, and goals on a timely manner. I will be touching base with Carlos and other AS members to ensure that this feature will be operational by the end of next week.

Committees

This week, the Student Leader Alliance met for the first time. This first meeting was mostly reserved for introductions and setting the tone for the meeting. We had the opportunity to give input on what students need during fall quarter and established regular meeting guidelines for the future.

Outreach Hour

The other campus wide senators and I will finalize how we want to roll out our weekly office hours this week. The plan is to submit a request to the AS graphic studio by today and have our final graphics by Week 6. 

Another idea that I had was creating a campus wide email that students can submit questions for. This would be a great way for us to reach out to the student population and answer questions about AS if said students are not available during office hours.

Senator Project Updates

I had a final meeting with Carlos this week regarding the Senator Projects page of the AS website. The final bugs have been removed and the page is now operational (you can visit the site at https://as.ucsd.edu/Home/SenatorProjects). 

In the upcoming weeks, I will be submitting an amendment to the standing rules to ensure that future senators will be mandated to report and update their Senator Projects. 

Internal Committee

In our Senate meeting today, we passed our fall budget. No items were amended; however, there was controversy surrounding SSC's budget (and their proposed stipend increase) . 

11-11-2020

Due to Veteran's Day, we did not have an Assembly meeting or Senate this week. However, I have submitted a Senator Accountability amendment to the Order of Business for next week's Senate meeting. I am also working on finalizing details for two new projects; Dine/Coffee with a Professor and Campus Wide Office Hours. More details will be released throughout the week.

11-18-2020

There was no Senate Meeting this week.

For now, I am focusing on shoring up my other projects.

  • I am looking to schedule a meeting wtih the new ITS contact for Associated Students to work on revamping the website.
  • I met with Senator Estus to discuss how we want to analyze the AS Fall Survey.
  • I am still waiting to hear back from AS Graphic Studios regarding Campus Wide Office Hours.

Outreach Hour

This week is our first week of running Campus Wide Office Hours. We will be meeting on Fridays from 3PM to 4PM at 937 4017 8625. We plan to take some of the questions asked during campus wide office hours and answer them as Q&As for the official Instagram account. 

Senator Project Updates

I am working with Senator Wei on bringing a form of Coffee/Dine with a professor for Winter and Spring quarter. Our goal is twofold; to create a guide for having a casual conversation with a professor outside of class and providing an incentive for students to do so. 

Internal Committee

In Legislative Committee, we approved a change to the appointment process of AVPs and the FC. These changes will be voted on during Senate.
