Hi! I’m Ravi, I’m an engineer, and I’m running on your slate. Wait what? I mean my slate. I mean my slate which is called YOUR slate because it’s really all about you!
I love Pitt; in fact, Cathy is the only woman to ever make me question my sexuality.
But some things here aren’t so great. Allocations, for example, a disaster. Student groups – often isolated. And admin decisions about student wants or needs usually don’t have any student input. I’m running to bring  transparency (release the whole allocations budget & all decisions to the public! – if it’s all honest then why hide it?),  connectivity (connecting different student groups – lowkey matchmaking, kind of an expert), and  student advocacy (when the Sodexo contract expires next year, students should be able to vote for their favorite option, not admins who’ve never stepped foot into Market!).
I feel like lately SGB has fallen into the trap of solving problems that don’t really exist, probably cause SGB doesn’t really talk to students (and I oop). I currently chair the Diversity and Inclusion committee, which is the most student-facing committee in SGB. We love and welcome complaints, survey students to nd out the scope of issues, and then aggressively work on the fastest solutions. I want to bring that to all of SGB – I want us to start talking to students again! What’d you say? A vote for my slate, is a vote for YOUR slate!
