Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because I am wholeheartedly committed to bettering the Fordham community! Through giving students a platform to express their concerns, I want to advocate for minority voices to shape a welcoming, inclusive environment at Fordham via programming, resources, etc.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

This year, the Diversity Action Coalition will continue to work with relevant student groups, faculty, and administration to expand upon the way in which the University advocates, celebrates, and supports all diverse identities. Alongside continued projects from last year such as the expansion of OMA in the updated McGinley Center; land acknowledgement; diversity recruitment program catalogue; and climate survey, the Diversity Action Coalition hopes to use student feedback to take on new initiatives that support the diverse Fordham community and promote intercultural student engagement.
