Every student has the right to benefit from all the available resources available that our diverse campus has to offer. The mission of Student Support & Advocacy is to work with campus departments, student organizations, and other coalitions in ASUCI to improve the structural support for all students. We will advocate for students in financial difficulties, personal crisis, student rights, and more through educational events and social media campaigns that will ultimately give students the necessary tools to be able to succeed. This commission will also work to educate students on their rights, and the rights of specific communities within the undergraduate population. Through this department, we want to be able to connect students with ASUCI, departments, and organizations, to be able to give students the opportunity to develop their own unique support system at their time at UCI.
