USG Growth Plan

We plan to grow the popularity and outreach of USG through a variety of metric-based strategies.

We plan to transition many of our services to popular online mediums such as Discord, we plan to continue an active USG social media presence, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and also we plan to launch an interactive and official website for USG as soon as we take office. In order to ensure growth efficiency, as your representatives in USG, we will measure our growth by using specific metrics, and we will use paid advertising on social media to maximize our outreach, growth, and engagement with students.

Finally, in order to increase the appeal of student government and incentive students to become engaged, we as leaders of USG will shift our messaging to appeal to what students truly believe in, and we will galvanize student participation by fighting for what they really want: a FREE and fully funded CUNY.

Diversity and Equity

The Gender Equity Task Force

The mission of the Gender Equity Task Force is to work towards gender equity in student leadership positions in the Undergraduate Student Government and to address issues of gender-based bias or discrimination that take place on campus.

The Gender Equity Task Force sims to:

  1. Recruit a diverse cohort of students to serve in leadership positions to make a more gender equitable governing body.

  2. Provide actionable steps to create a campus climate and learning environment that is free from gender-based discrimination and harassment.

  3. Become a liaison for the students by actively listening to their voices and addressing their concerns.

  4. Work with important resources already instituted across campus and ensure they are known to the students.
