The Carolina Union Activities Board (CUAB) is excited to announce that Jordan Bermudez, a sophomore sports administration major, has been elected to serve as the 2017-2018 CUAB President and Vice-Chair of the Union Board of Directors.
Bermudez has been involved with CUAB since joining the UNC community -- she applied for the concerts committee after she met CUAB at orientation, and currently serves as the committee’s co-chair. She strives to respond to the desires of the student body while honoring the inclusive mission of CUAB.
“For me, is expanding the legacy of CUAB and catering to what the students want. We also want to provide more informative cultural programming involving social justice,” said Bermudez.
UNC students are encouraged to voice their desires and concerns to CUAB during Bermudez’s tenure as President. When asked about next year, Bermudez was clear that she valued the student voice, and cited this year’s Jubilee concert as an example. “Students should be excited about seeing their ideas turn into programs. This year, we used the genre survey for Jubilee, and we were able to turn students’ preferences into a concert.”
Bermudez looks forward to serving with all types of student organizations to promote accessibility and inclusivity.
“It’s all about building a network of students and creating a more collaborative space for campus,” said Bermudez. “Our larger organization can partner with smaller ones to make the Union a home for all.”
