Technical Writer & Constitutional Consultant, Claremont Graduate University, Graduate Student Council Executive CORE Team

September 2020 - May 2021

Christina served as the chief draftsman to ensure consistency of the Graduate Student Constitution and By-Laws at Claremont Graduate University. She continually monitored, updated, and refined the GSC Constitution and By-Laws to ensure that the literature aligned with GSC’s initiative of Diversity and Inclusion to combat systemic racism and to strengthen and connect its student body through in-person, virtual, and digital communities. She worked closely with the Dean of Students Office, as well as the Constitutional Committee Team where she also served as a member. Christina checked that all constructive changes fit in line with CGU’s quadripartite transformation strategy of policy modernization, digital transformation, data driven decision-making, and organizational restructuring. Her finals edits passed with a unanimous decision from the student body and she concluded her position with a newly ratified Constitutional document to be implemented for the GSC 2021-2022 Executive Board.
