Board of Directors

Statement

My name is Dylan Adkins, and I am running for the position to be one of your student board members for the University Co-op. With experience around campus, including The University of Texas Student Government, the Undergraduate Business Council, the Center for Sports Leadership and Innovation, and the Gateway Scholars Program, my diversification of organizations and knowledge garnered from people within them make me a valuable candidate for this position. I have led tangible initiatives from holding candle-lit vigils for the November attacks on Paris, Beirut, and others, to passing legislation to bring food trucks on campus this coming February as a part of the Speedway Project. I'm a proud Longhorn that wants to better the student experience for the long run. Hook'em!

Platform

If selected as a student member on the Board of Directors, I look to:

-Increase efficiency of book selling processes to students

-Create discounts for bulk buys of books for students

-Create a yearly promotional event for the Co-op and UT in the picnic area behind the store

Board of Directors

Statement

Running for the Co-op Board of Directors is something that I’ve been excited to do for a long time now. Through various organizations that I have had the fortune of joining, including the UT Senate, the Undergraduate Business Council, and many others, I believe that I am fully prepared for this Co-op position. With this position I hope to help improve the lives of UT students by voicing student concerns to the other Board members. Some of the things I’d like to do are lower textbook prices, offer better merchandise, and use the food truck lot more productively. I believe that my ability to communicate effectively while also being able to listen to the wants and needs of the student population will ensure that I am able to perform in this role in a way that is beneficial to the UT student body.

Platform

1. Improve textbook order process and prices

2. Improve merchandise offered

3. Use food truck lot behind the Co-op more effectively
