We want to implement change that everyone can see, not just behind closed doors and for certain groups. Phase two builds on what the change is going to be and what you can look forward to with Toki Hong as President. Community, Inclusion, Growth, and Security. These key areas have been identified as areas that need improvement and or strengthening in order to better the campus.
