The Association of Students of the University of Nebraska will hear from the new Vice Chancellor for Diversity and InclusionMarco Barker and discuss one bill related to the Nebraska International Peer Mentorship Program during the senate body’s last meeting on Wednesday, April 24.
Barker will introduce himself to the senate body during open forum. Speaker of the senate Drew Harrahill encouraged senators to think about questions to ask Barker so ASUN can learn how to work with him.
“We're excited to talk with him and hopefully work together in the upcoming year,” Harrahill said in a text message.
Freshman Campus Leadership Associate Mark Iradukunda wrote Government Bill 8, which moves for ASUN to support the Nebraska International Peer Mentorship Program. The program will pair first-year or transfer international students with domestic students to create a more diverse and inclusive student body, according to the bill.
If passed, ASUN will post information about how students can apply to the program.
The senate meeting will take place in Colonial Room A at the Nebraska Union at 6:30 p.m.
