Equity and Inclusion Senator
Hi everyone! My name is Maegan Valencia and I am the Equity and Inclusion Senator-at-Large for the 32nd Session and UNITY Roundtable Co-President. I am a sophomore here at Drake University majoring in computer science with a minor in Spanish and a concentration in women and gender studies. I am from a suburb of Chicago called Round Lake Beach and I am enjoying my time in Des Moines. Outside of Senate, I work in the Dean’s Office of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, am the Secretary of La Fuerza Latina, and a Student Equity Action Partner.
In both my roles as a Senator and Co-president, I work to advocate for and work with the multicultural organizations on campus to make sure their voices are heard and represented on campus. I ran for this position because I care about the people that exist on this campus and want to work with them in order to make our campus a more equitable and inclusive place to learn, live, and simply exist. If anyone would like to reach out to me, I can always be found via email or in my office hour each week. Thank you!
