Student Advisory Board (SAB)

Dear TWC community,

The Third World Center Student Advisory Board (SAB) has played a critical role in the Center's evolution. In 2011-12, the SAB participated in two successful searches for Assistant Director positions. In 2012-13, the SAB took part in the Center's program review and re-established the student leadership awards. This year, the SAB's charge is:
• communicate updates to/from SAB from/to respective leadership groups;
• participate in the TWC's strategic planning process;
• provide timely feedback on TWC priorities and delegated tasks.

It is with great excitement that I announce this year's SAB members:
• Martin Donoyan '15 (Heritage Series)
• Justice Gaines '16 (MPC Friends)
• Vicki Kidd '16 (MPC)
• Tolulope Lawal '16 (First-Gen)
• Jenny Li '14 (At-Large Member)
• Esmeralda Marlene Lopez '16 (At-Large Member)
• Angie Ocampo '15 (Initiatives)
• Chris Tran '17 (TWTP)
• Yen Tran '14 (SDWC/LGBTQ Center)
• Jarred Turner '16 (The Next Thing)

I have full confidence that this board will contribute a great deal to the success of the TWC's signature programs and initiatives. I would also like to thank former SAB members who assisted in the anonymous review of this year's applications and selection for TWTP and at-large members: Cythnia Fong '14, Will Furuyama '16, Hisa Hashisaka '14, Richie Leng '14, Angie Ocampo '15, and Paul Tran '14. Please join me in congratulating our new SAB members!
