As a Union Outsider

Kornreich feels she can offer new energy. In her opinion student democracy only works if the Union is aware of exactly what the students need and desire so she will use her experience as an activist to reach out to the student body on multiple levels through polling, forums, video updates and overall open dialogue with the community.

Main Presidential Objectives

Environmental Sustainability initiatives working closely with Students for Environmental Action and the administration to ensure Brandeis continues to invest in environmental sustainability. She believes it is time to completely eliminate bottled water from campus, demand local food in the dining halls, and seek out other ways to reduce the Brandeis community’s environmental impact.

A highly informed student union regarding its community and their needs, she plans to implement this through constantly asking questions through polling to gauge what students want to see from their government.

“I truly believe we can challenge Brandeis to be the best she can be. We must inspire students to dream big of a student union without limits.”
