Beyond Politics Bruins Adelante Coalition believes that we must go beyond politics to reach a truly effective USAC. We unequivocally believe in putting the people over politics. We refuse to succumb to the petty politics that often surround council members and their offices. To go beyond the politics of USAC, BAC will: Pledge to work productively and positively with all councilmembers elected, regardless of slate affiliation or independent status. Emphasize parliamentarianism during council meetings and in inter-office projects. Never isolate particular councilmembers or their offices from collaboration. Coalition Building Bruins Adelante Coalition believes in developing a campus-wide spirit of collaboration across all student groups, including other slates and students from all academic identities. We see coalition building as the impetus to move forwards, looking towards an inclusive and collaborative student body. To foster coalition building throughout campus, BAC will: Derive projects and goals from broad student feedback. Connect student organizations and individuals seeking to work together. Maintain ties with student organizations and undergraduate colleges to set a foundation for future collaboration. Fostering Empathy Bruins Adelante Coalition believes that we must change the culture surrounding academia and the student body at UCLA. As our year-and-a-half of online learning has shown us, many professors, administrators, and even fellow students are often not aware of the difficulties that many of us experience around our academic lives.

Bruins Adelante Coalition believes that we have a duty to develop community needs at UCLA and the surrounding area. We strive to support student projects, student safety, and community collaboration through our collective and coalition-driven efforts. We seek to give back to the leaders and community members who helped us get to where we are now. To foster an environment of community care, BAC will: Promote student-led businesses and encourage students to support the campus economy. Invest in the Los Angeles community by partnering with community schools and expanding outreach in the Westwood neighborhood and surrounding area. Work with the Westwood Neighborhood Council to advance student area issues collaboratively. Encourage campus safety efforts by supporting the work of the No UCPD Coalition and educating students about safety information that goes beyond what the institution shows us in tours and orientation. Challenge the demographics of the student body to develop a more diverse vision of what Westwood and UCLA can look like.

Centering the Student Body Bruins Adelante Coalition believes in dismantling USAC overreach and returning council focus to actual student needs. We unequivocally stand by the fact that USAC must work for the students, not the other way around. To center the student body, BAC will: Actively outreach to students in South Campus, School of Music, School of Engineering, School of Arts and Architecture, School of Nursing, and the School of Theatre, Film, and Television to pursue hiring and decision-making from across the entire academic student body. Amplify student programming and activism that supports holistic student wellness and mental health, particularly in the transition to hybrid and on-campus learning. Regularly solicit individual student feedback to both particular offices and USAC as a whole. Ensure that our doors are always open to feedback from individual students.

Bruins Adelante Coalition believes that student organizations are vital to institutional change at UCLA. Student-led organizations and programs have been a cornerstone of the university’s history and support of under-served students. We strive to honor the work of student organizations by prioritizing communications with student groups not only while producing resolutions and council decisions, but also throughout each of our office’s routines. To support and honor student organizations, BAC will: Assign council representatives to attend student organizations meetings, with the understanding that we enter those spaces to learn from and center the community’s needs. Include all student organizations, including but not limited to the Mother Organizations and their umbrella organizations, throughout USAC decision-making processes. Create a mailing list for all organizations to receive Council Meeting Agendas in advance of our weekly meetings, giving them the awareness of USAC’s planned discussions and the opportunity to prepare to attend in advance. Expand and audit the Congressional Advisory Board to maximize effectiveness and influence towards USAC decisions. Ensure that our doors are always open to feedback from student organizations.

Excited to introduce Tessa Holzmann, our Investigation Team Coordinator! Tessa is a sophomore at UCLA and her favorite spot on campus is the geology building because of all the cool fossils you can see there! What she misses most about UCLA is walking to class… even though she used to complain about it all the time! Keep an eye out for Tessa! #gobruins

Laura: During our research phase, we realized that there was no transfer specific data relating to the UC experience. It’s almost as if administrative bodies believe that your transfer status leaves you when you make it to a UC. This was concerning to us because the transfer community is made up of very diverse intersectional identities and these identities influence our experiences in different ways than direct entry students. If the UC policy making bodies are treating all students as one monolith and not understanding or recognizing  the different needs of transfer students,  how can we be sure that we are getting a fair experience  at the UC?  This study serves as a tool for the UC Regents. With better understanding  of transfer issues, we believe  they will make more informed decisions and in turn, create a better environment for transfer success.
