Anteaters in Action Commission
Anteaters in Action (“AIA”) is a commission under the Office of the Internal Vice President. We strongly believe that giving back not only helps others but also makes our Anteater community stronger. With this ideal, our commission focuses on creating accessible, student-friendly events on campus. We understand there are plenty of opportunities to give through many different organizations on campus, but our main goal is to provide that opportunity to every student, showing that even a few minutes of your school day could create a big difference. Feel free to add us on social media to keep yourself updated:

Hope to see you soon! 🙂
Our motto is “giving is the best communication”. Every year, we try to express our motto by hosting many different service events depending on our team. Last year, we were able to create events that helped animal shelters, domestic violence shelters, cancer research, food pantries, mental health non-profits and more. This year, we plan to continue AIA’s tradition of UC I Give Back during Welcome Week and host a Donate Life Week in the spring (April 23-28). Along with these, we try to base our events on helping non-profits for causes that the UCI population is highly interested in helping in. While the type of events fluctuate over the year, Anteaters in Action’s long term goal is to provide opportunities and the extra step in strengthening our community through the bond and passion of our fellow anteaters.
Hi! My name is Jharen Rivera and I am the Anteaters in Action commissioner for this school year! I am currently an Education major in the process of doubling with Informatics. One thing that you must know about me is that service is one key part of my life. I was an Anteaters in Action intern last year so I feel blessed to get the opportunity to serve UCI through AIA for another year. As an intern, I was able to learn more about ASUCI, our Anteaters in Action motives and values, and express empathy to those in our community who need it the most. After all the various learning experiences through this commission, I hope to share the love the giving back with all of you through our many service events on campus! I’m so excited to see you at our events! If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Zot zot zot!
Office Hours: Winter Quarter: Thursdays 8:30-11:00am in the ASUCI Office or by appointment
