Hello Highlanders!

The Student Voice Committee (SVC) will be raffling off Gift Cards to Amazon!!!!

All you need to do is complete a survey sharing your thoughts about the ASUCR Elections, what motivates you to vote, how the elections can be improved in the future, and much more. After that, you may choose to leave your email for the raffle.

As a kind reminder, please make sure to complete the survey by January 29th at 11:59 PM PDT in order to get your name in the raffle on time.


We strongly encourage you to complete this survey, regardless of whether or not you have voted in past ASUCR elections.


Your feedback is important more than ever to making sure that UCR students, like yourself, are able to trust in the election process as well as be able to vote more easily in the upcoming ASUCR elections this year with greater motivation.

Hi Highlanders! Happy Wednesday. Join us this Friday, January 29 from 1pm to 2pm for our Zero Waste Webinar. We will be covering what Zero-Waste is and things you can do to lower your waste to minimize it being sent to landfill and our oceans. 


We will be giving four $50 E-Gift Cards to the Zero Waste Store to help y'all make the switch to low/ minimal / Zero - Waste living. Click here to join us Friday! 


Sign the petition to fight climate change Climate change is one of the most profound threats of our time and we are already feeling the impact. For example, last year 4 million acres in California burned from wildfires. Plus, Riverside County has the second worst air quality in the nation! We need to switch from fossil fuels to 100% clean and renewable energy. Our state is on the path to switch to renewable electricity, but not fast enough to stop the worst impacts of climate change. 


Sign this petition from CALPIRG Students and join 15,000 other UC students calling on Governor Newsom to speed up our transition to 100% clean energy! 


Thank you Highlanders, together we can work on creating a better tomorrow.

Dear Highlanders,


We hope that all of you had a restful winter break, and we wish you the best of luck on the new academic quarter as well as with the new year. Amidst these trying times, our university has undergone numerous budget cuts, many of which have been severe and have impacted the livelihood of students, faculty, and staff alike. It is the duty of campus administrators to ensure they are working quickly, carefully, and efficiently to preserve our university's identity and ensure that all and any funds that can support students reach students. However, this duty has not been met. UCR's status as a “Hispanic Serving Institution,” or HSI, was revoked as a result of UCR administrators and mistakes when filing the appropriate paperwork to renew the status. As a result, our university has lost thousands of dollars that have been allocated to support low-income minority students, particularly those of Hispanic and/or Latino descent, for many years now.


We ask that campus administrators take full responsibility for their actions and publicly inform students of the severity of their "clerical error," and are held accountable. To do this, we need your help to rally together, sign our petition and email campus administrators so they take responsibility for their actions. For more information regarding what an HSI is, how HSI grants have been used by UCR and how we can ensure that our campus administration is transparent, please read a statement from our office which can be accessed here or via https://tinyurl.com/UCRHSI.


In solidarity and community, 

The Office of the Vice President of Campus Internal Affairs - Diversity Council
