We believe that leadership is the ability to take an
organization from one place to a better place and then being proud
of the path we took to get there. This ideal should be central to
all campaigns, but we are the only ticket that has the leadership
qualities and experience combined with new initiatives and a
positive message that will truly improve every student’s experience
Dustin for the past year has served as director of academics,
where he has worked along with the Senate Academics Committee,
Faculty Council and the Provost/Academic Vice President’s office to
tackle a variety of issues that include standardizing the use of
the plus/minus grading system, improving the format of first-year
seminars as well as academic advising. However, it is his
experience with the Colorado state legislature that sets him apart
from all other presidential candidates. Dustin serves as a
legislative intern for a member of the Joint Budget Committee,
where he has become well versed with the state fiscal situation and
its impacts at CSU. His knowledge of these issues will make him the
best president to navigate the political arena effectively and be
the best advocate for the students.
In addition to two years on the Associated Students of CSU
Supreme Court, this year Kyle has served as an associate senator
for the College of Liberal Arts, director of operations for
RamRide, as well as a member of the Student Fee Review Board. Kyle
understands how to lead a legislative body that produces results
and represents students effectively. As director of operations for
RamRide, Kyle has first-hand experience with the types of student
services students can expect and enjoy from ASCSU and what steps
need to be taken to improve them.
However, experience alone will not take us where we need to go.
While we must stay committed to improving the current services of
ASCSU, such as RamRide, Ram Road Trip, Book Swap and Positive
Impact. We must continually strive to pave the way for new ideas
that will enable your student government to progress. Something new
you can expect from our administration is Dead Week. The Dead Week
we want to bring to CSU is the same type seen at other universities
across the country. We envision this as the week before finals
where students are not offered new content, papers, quizzes or
regular coursework, but rather have a week dedicated to review only
for more adequate finals preparation. We will work with the
students of Colorado State as well as the faculty to find a Dead
Week that will benefit students and will work at CSU.
April 7 marks the end of elections, but the beginning of an
administration that will remain committed to seeking out the
student voice on issues ranging from tuition and fees to parking.
To realize this vision we need the endorsement of every student.
