SHAWON JACKSON: Hi, I'm Shawon I'm your USG President.
CARMINA MANCENON: I'm Carmina, I'm your USG Vice-President.
SHAWON JACKSON: And we wanted to take the time to share with you some of the core goals that we have for
this upcoming year. So our goals are centered
around a quote from Elie Wesel, "To lead
is to serve," and to fulfill that quote,
what we're doing is focusing our administration
on three main things. The first is about access,
making sure that you have access to all the
great resources on campus and to the great
projects that USG is doing. The second is
about accountability, making sure that we
update you on things that we're doing, putting
you on mailing lists, and really making sure
that we are efficient about our work. And
lastly, we want to focus on approachability,
so not just an organization that's open to
you, but being an organization that's fun
and an organization that you want to come
to. We really look forward to everything we
can get out of this year.
CARMINA MANCENON: One of the things I'm really excited about
this year is for the USG to connect every
student on campus and their own interest,
and really create a space for everyone to
feel at home on campus, whether that's through the Mental Health Initiative or creating ties
between the student body and community affairs.
And as Vice-President, my role is really centered
around internal affairs, and Shawon and I
are always talking about how excited we are
to have this really dynamic and bright USG
on board, and how many new ideas and exciting
projects are underway, and we're looking forward
to sharing things with you throughout the
SHAWON JACKSON: Thanks for taking the time to listen to our
core goals for this year, and definitely keep
reading those weekly emails from USG.
CARMINA MANCENON: But just in case you don't, feel free to
drop by the USG office in Frist anytime; sometimes,
we are here more than we are in our own room.
But if you don't have time to drop by, also
send us an email.
SHAWON JACKSON: We'd love to hear from you! Thanks for your
time, and have a great year!
