WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE ISSUES? 1. Scale back/remove bullying 2. Apply strain to replace curriculum 3. Guarantee capital effectivity
IF ELECTED, WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR FIRST 100 DAYS? It will probably take me this time to know the nuances of the board, and pursuits of stakeholders. It will be naïve, and maybe, harmful to try to accomplish something grand within the first 100 days. Long run mission could be instilling confidence in college students (i.e. shallowness).
