Message from the 2018-19 Student Body President

Dear UNC Community,

My name is Tim Hernández, and I am your Student Body President for the 2018-2019 school year. I am originally from Denver, but I have called Greeley home for the last three years. And, as I enter my senior year, I can say without a doubt that I have never experienced such a strong sense of community here at UNC. I play a part in that, you play a part in that, and so does your Student Senate. That is why I feel it necessary to express to you the role Student Senate wishes to have in our community this year. We have identified three visions that we are excited to get working on in our community, and you are more than welcome to join us as we work to build a more engaged and equitable UNC.

First, we believe in investing in the diversity we have here at UNC, which is why we have identified “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” as one of our three visions. Through this, we hope to generate a more equitable UNC for all students of all identities, ideologies, and belief systems. Second, we have decided that an essentiality in our community is transparency. All members of our community deserve to be on the same page when it comes to University-wide information, and so we hope to generate a system that does such for you. Last, Student Senate wants to be a part of building a strong sense of community here at UNC. Whether this be done through things like establishing tradition, choosing student values, or becoming more engaged directly with the UNC community through outreach efforts. Again, you are invited to work with Senate on any of these objectives. We cannot effectively work on these without your help.

I firmly believe in the power of student voice, and am dedicated to making UNC something that every student can be proud of. Let’s build together.


Tim Hernández
