In unity with Presidential candidate, Fayza Salah, the YOUR Nevada campaign strives to build a campus community that creates an empowering environment for students that intentionally focuses on the individual student experience that makes your time at Nevada, uniquely yours.
YOUR Nevada will center students with:
1. Challenging the Status Quo: Empowering YOU to break out of the box that institutions place us in by redefining limiting power structures and focusing our resources on YOUR needs.
2. Impact and Intention: focusing on the issues students repeatedly voice to ASUN and university administration, but that often fall to the side.
3. Advocacy with empathy, compassion, and community: streamlining communication to make sure YOUR Nevada accurately represents YOUR needs as ASUN works to serve YOU.
