Office of the President

Tracy La


E-mail President
The Office of the President serves as the liaison between students and the administration. The Office of the President is tasked with connecting the voice of students to our campus leadership, as well as to the advocacy agenda of ASUCI. Its main goal is to represent the voice of the students at-large, and the issues it focuses on changes year by year depending on issues affecting the campus. 

The ASUCI President sits on several campus boards and committees with the purpose of ensuring that student voices and concerns are represented in the decision-making process by administration on campus. The ASUCI President also sits on the UC Council of Student Body Presidents, which is an organizational body comprised of all of the student body presidents throughout the UC System.

For the 2016-2017 school year, the office will be addressing several issues through 8 commissions: the 60 by 16 Voter Registration Campaign, Art Lab, Campus Climate, Media & Communications, Mental Health, Recruitment & Retention, and the Student Programming Funding Board.
