Mission and History of the External Vice President
The External Vice President’s Office works to promote student advocacy on a local, statewide and national level in order to bring awareness to the importance of affordability, accessibility, quality, safety and diversity at UCI. The EVP serves as the student liaison to the UC Regents, local, state, and national elected officials and works to have student interests reflected in policy. We organize around tuition, worker solidarity, advancing human rights, voter education, and equity in the UC system. The EVP office hopes to address injustices and support advocacy work and legislation that further challenges the issues that students face.
Meet the External Vice President
Hi everyone! My name is Alan Calderon and I have the honor of serving as your External Vice President. I am a fourth-year Political Science/International Studies major and an aspiring lawyer. I have been in ASUCI since my first year and have served as an Intern, Commissioner, Senator, Chief of Staff, and now External Vice President. In my free time, I follow soccer almost obsessively (Mexican, Spanish, English, French, Italian Leagues, Champions League, etc.), love reading Supreme Court Cases, and am a cat lover. As your External Vice President, I am fighting to centralize and localize our student advocacy. Read my agenda below!
Chief of Staff
Hii! My name is Hilary Nguyen (she/her) and I served as your Legislative Director during the 2019-2020 academic school year. Now, I am happy to be your EVP Chief of Staff for the 2020-2021 academic school year. I am a Political Science major with a minor in International Studies. The entire EVP staff is looking forward to representing students with all different kinds of projects, including bill-writing, organizing, grants, and so much more.
