Steven Gomez

Hello Gators!

 

My name is Steven H Gomez (he/him/his) and I am running to be your next Vice President of External Affairs for Associated Students (AS). As your current Graduate Representative, and Vice Chair of External Affairs Council, I have been advocating not only for graduate students but for the entire student body at the Board of Trustees against the proposed tuition increase by the Chancellor’s Office. I was also one of the two co-authors on the resolution condemning tuition increase which was unanimously passed by the AS Board of Directors.

 

I firmly believe in equal access, affordability, and quality education for ALL people. As a first-generation immigrant, given the cultural climate, I also recognize that there is a huge need to protect our AB540, DACA, undocumented, and other underrepresented minorities and will fight as hard as I can to make sure those voices are heard.

 

While I have accomplished many things in my current position, there is still so much work that needs to be done. As your Vice President of External Affairs, I will continue:

 

  • Advocating for SF State students at the city, state, and federal levels
  • Work on creating a Bay Area Student Coalition to include city/community colleges, CSUs, and UC’s
  • Representing the entire university community at the California State Student Association (CSSA)
  • Fighting for more student resources (mental health resources, food/housing insecurity resources, LGBTQIIA+ support, supporting our formerly incarcerated students, social and environmental justice, the list is far too vast to enumerate.)
