Director’s Corner

Welcome to the Director’s Corner! This was an effort established a few years back but had been archived. In the interest of transparency and accountability to the student body, I have reinstated the Director’s Corner.

The Corner will serve as a location for students to receive regular updates on the Director’s advocacy efforts in Olympia. You can also take recommended action in support of legislation ASUW OGR is supporting by reading the “Bill Alert” posts.

Meet the Director:

MJ is a Senior studying Political Science and Law Societies and Justice.
