Each year, the Daily Bruin evaluates each Undergraduate Students Association Council member’s term in office. This year, the Bruin’s editorial board has taken into consideration four major criteria in the evaluations: platform completion, the quality of the councilmembers’ platforms, how well they fulfilled their respective roles as mandated by the USAC bylaws and their commitment to transparency and accountability.
For each factor, the board voted to assign councilmembers a score from 1 to 5, 5 being the highest. The final scores represent the majority opinion of the board.
Also part of this package are the results from a student poll to gauge satisfaction with each councilmember’s performance.
Note: The Bruin fully evaluated every councilmember that served in his or her office past the midpoint of the term. Former president Devin Murphy and former Facilities Commissioner Carlos Quintanilla received full evaluations, while former General Representative 2 Nihal Satyadev, who served for only a few weeks, did not.
