Title IX Protections Act - Nov. 29 The EVP Office tabled at the Quarry on the 29th! Through collaboration with UCSC’s CARE Office, we informed informed students about what is happening with Title IX at the federal level and what resources are available to survivors at UCSC. Students signed petitions showing their support for the Title IX Protection Act and some even shared their thoughts and stories. The EVP Office was very pleased with the turn out! CSAC Meeting Nov. 30 First time meeting with the CA Student Aid Commission Board There was representation from Community Colleges, CalStates, and UC’s I addressed: Affordability - Total Cost of Attendance Our advocacy for the Middle Class Scholarship, DreamLoan, and other programs aimed at assisting students to access and attain a UC education. Introduced our campaigns Reiterated our support for SEARS ( Student Expenses and Resources Survey) I look forward to working with CSAC to ensure that students have the financial support necessary to pursue a UC education SUA Thoughts and Improvements This month was dedicated to reorganizing the EVP Office. It has definitely been very difficult balancing both of my roles as the External VP to UCSC and the President of UCSA. To avoid biting off more than I can chew, my staff and I made sure to prioritize our efforts for the year. We strongly believe that the wellbeing of students is of great importance and that any issue students face - big or small - is worth tackling. That being said, though, it is important to pick your battles. In other words, to focus your energy on an issue important to your community (i.e. homelessness in Santa Cruz) and truly tackling it in good faith before moving on to another issue.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
