SENATOR CARMEL GUTHERZ
Senator, University and External Affairs Committee Chair
Year: 4th Year
Interests: Parks, museums and concerts, watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, and finding the best mac n’ cheese of the Bay Area.
Goals: This year, I’m hoping to instill a culture of transfer inclusivity in the ASUC and the University. My office is dedicated to taking the concerns of the transfer, parent, veteran and re-entry student communities and finding pathways for policy solutions to uplift their experiences at Cal. We will also be working on expanding the ASUC’s Health Opportunity Fund, as well as pioneering a Commuter Initiative Program designed to provide discounted parking passes for low-income students. We look forward to partnering with the Disabled Students’ Program and disabled student organizations to address matters of accessibility and equity on campus – including advocating for increased funding for resources which students need to be academically successful. In addition to these goals, my office will act as a support, collaborator and advocate for initiatives in basic needs, as this issue is central to the students I represent.
