I want to advocate for a community setting within CED by creating a mentorship program that matches upperclassman with lower-classman.
I want to advocate for affordability by creating a reuse and sale program through CED for people to sell and donate unused/extra materials.
I want to improve CED student teacher connections by providing events that allow you to talk with your teacher outside of a classroom setting.

Ashea Fuller | 4th Year
As a re-entry transfer, veteran, and parent, Ashea proudly represents and stands in solidarity with non-traditional students from a position of expansive life and work experience. As a humanist and empath, it is easy for her to meet all people and systems where they are. An action-oriented realist, she proactively uses her own subset of privilege to boldly face historically overlooked issues, influence and impact social and physical structures with intention, and create change.
