Julia LinCampus Climate Social Justice Director
Hi everyone! My name is Julia (she/hers) and I’m a third year majoring in Psychological Science. I am delighted to be serving as the Campus Climate Commission’s Social Justice Director for the 2021-2022 academic year! I’m committed to fostering an open, understanding environment on campus and I endeavor to co-lead the commission with intention, transparency, and enthusiasm. A few of my past and current involvements include being a staffer in the Mental Health Commission, an ACTIVE Peer Facilitator, an RTK/CHAMPS Peer Educator for UCI CARE, and an English Facilitator for the International Center. During my spare time, I love hanging out with my friends and going on food or boba runs! If you have any questions or would like to connect, please feel free to contact me at!  
Briana MaderaCampus Climate Racial Justice Director
Hello everyone, I am Briana (Bri for short :)). I am an incoming fourth year student majoring in Political Science and minoring in Medical Anthropology. I am honored to be serving as your Racial Justice Director for the 2021-2022 school year! I intend to advocate and uplift marginalized communities on campus along with my co-commissioner Julia Lin. Our goal is to foster an environment where students can feel safe and empowered to be who they are. Outside of ASUCI, I enjoy capturing beautiful memories of my friends on film, sharing my cooking tutorials, and reading good books.

Our commission focuses on three values: inclusivity, safety, and equity. The following pillars create the climate on campus: 

  • Do students feel welcome?
  • Do students feel safe and understood?
  • Do students feel equal to their peers?

Despite the name, our commission does not focus on climate change or environmental concerns. Our goal is to uplift marginalized communities in the undergraduate student body and create a climate on campus that is consistent with our three pillars.  

Mission Statement: The Campus Climate Commission strives to…

  • Foster a welcoming environment on campus where students of all backgrounds and identities can feel safe and comfortable around their peers and staff.
  • Actively work with students and faculty members to facilitate discussions centered around equity and inclusivity to help inform the UCI population about social justice and  uplift historically underserved communities on campus. 
  • Provide a safe space for students to gain an understanding of one another.
  • Ensure that all identities are given a platform to voice their truth through the creation of events and programs in collaboration with other organizations and departments on campus. 

Vision Statement: 

  • Through collaborative work with other organizations and commissions on campus, our goal is to deliver clear communication and honesty to the greater student body, and foster a community where students feel as though they are welcome and accepted by their peers and staff.
