The UIC-GEO steering committee has voted to endorse Ken Thomas in the upcoming student trustee election. Ken has demonstrated a willingess to listen to the needs of graduate employees at UIC and has worked together with GEO members to help advance those interests. For example:
- Ken agreed to set up a separate town hall meeting for grads last semester when the first one scheduled was at a time when many grads who wanted to come were unable to make it.
- He has been active in working with GEO on trying to improve Campus Care.
- He voted ‘no’ in the Board of Trustees vote on a tuition increase earlier this year.
Because of his consistent commitment to working with graduate employees on issues that are important to us, the SC recommends a vote for Ken Thomas for student trustee.
The online election for UIC student trustee is open March 6 and 7 at uicvote.net.
