Candidate Statement: 

Hey Hornets, my name is Jenn Galinato and I’m running to be your next Vice President of Academic Affairs! I’ve served on several ASI’s internal committees and am involved in clubs, such as MUN, that Sac State has to offer since transferring here. As your VPAA, I will passionately represent students on the matters that are impacting students of today, tomorrow, and in the future by ensuring our approach is student-led and student-first. The CSU tuition hike has presented profound challenges for our students, needing immediate action. As your VPAA, I will prioritize: empowering current student resources (such as increasing student awareness focused on basic needs and mental health services), continued implementation of DEIA (diversity, equity, inclusivity, and accessibility) within the curriculum to strengthen the relationship between communities and student demographic populations, strengthening transfer and first-year student experiences, revisiting strategies to improve student enrollment and retention while reviewing graduation and transfer rates, continued collaboration and partnership with the VPUA for student engagement and stakeholder responsiveness, and ensure that the Board of Directors are aware of all matters in our classrooms to take actions that are necessary to ensure the success of all 32,000 students at Sac State. I will empower and inspire our students within my role upon being elected to see them succeed. On April 10th and 11th, put your vote in for Jenny G for VPAA at the polls because STUDENTS LEAD FIRST!
