Hello! I am excited to announce that I will serving as UCSB’s Student Advocate General for the 2021-2022 academic year. I feel that there is a lot of work to be done in the following quarters to address student concerns regarding university policy as well as promoting a campus community committed to upholding diversity, promoting equity, and providing a home for one another. Please reach out to me or my staff with any questions regarding the Office of the Student Advocate’s ability to serve as your Campus Public Defender.
