Wednesday, November 9, 2016


This month's Spotlight features Paul, a former Sociology and Global Studies double major who is now the voice of the student body on the UC Board of Regents.

Paul on getting his start in policy and activism at UCSB:

"We'd heard about students at UCSB skipping meals on a regular basis in order to be able to afford textbooks or rent. So we crafted a survey for the student body, which revealed the gravity of the issue of hunger and food insecurity at UCSB's campus. We convened folks in Student Affairs, OSL, EOP, the Alumni Association, and a couple of the deans to sit around the table and think through strategies."

Paul welcomes UCSB students to contact him via email for mentorship and advice about career paths in public policy. As always, please do not send requests to review resumes.
