The Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Community at Cal (CAC-LGBTQ) is a standing committee reporting to the Chancellor, comprised of UC Berkeley staff, faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, alumni, and ex officio representatives. To promote a tolerant and inclusive campus environment, the committee regularly identifies, analyzes, and advises the Chancellor and senior administration on needs and concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer faculty, staff, students, alumni, and affiliates at UC Berkeley. As a member and Co-Chair my tasks were the following:
Lothlorien (co-operative house) representative within the Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC). The BSC's mission is to provide affordable housing and board to UC Berkeley and other Bay Area college and university students. By providing low-cost cooperative housing the BSC thereby provides an educational opportunity for students who might not otherwise be able to afford a university education. In order to best serve the BSC's mission, there is sometimes needed to make exceptions to policy (for example, someone who may need to defer rent payments beyond the normal time limits) or to determine consequences for conduct violations; the Administrative Committee is there to represent the student and BSC and bring forth a resolution.
