How We’ll Get it Done
I. Promote intercultural exchanges within the East Asian Community
Simplify the space and funding application process for clubs by increasing transparency on ASUC resources and efficiency of communication with the LEAD Center.
Facilitate cultural events by sharing event-planning experience and marketing resources among cultural clubs through regular executive meetings and collaboration with the East Asian Union (EAU).
Improve public awareness and understanding of East Asian culture via regular cultural performances on Sproul Plaza to advocate the diversity of cultures at Cal.
II. Smoothen and strengthen the college experience for international students
Cultivate an anti-discriminatory environment for international students and researchers by improving the Golden Bear Orientation with an emphasis on cultural diversity, addressing the importance of cultural cohesion on campus and preventing xenophobic incidents.
Increase international students’ access to financial support by expanding current BIO-supported scholarships, loans, and financial aids to alleviate the financial burden of the international student body.
Provide support on students’ post-graduation plans through networking events and professional workshop in collaboration with Berkeley International Office (BIO), Career Center, and international alumni chapters.
III. Improve the current Night Safety Services and overall campus safety
Publicize the existing Night Safety Services to ensure the safety of students at night through measures as creating a detailed guidebook for the use of emergency blue light phones on campus.
Improve the time-efficiency of the current underused Nixel report system by collaborating with ASUC CTO and implementing a student-report scheme within the ASUC-owned app Berkeley Mobile.
Bridge the communication between UC Berkeley Life Safety Committee and Department of Planning & Development within the City of Berkeley and provide a plant for an adequate lighting system to elevate students’ safety both on and off campus.
