Why did you want to be a CUE?
Coming to IU, I learned that there were so many kinds of people who faced different problems because of their social identities. When I first saw a bulletin board from the CUE program, I felt happy to know that there were people who focused on explaining pertinent social issues to our residence halls. I have always known that I want to learn and grow as a person and being a CUE would not only give myself an opportunity to learn more about social justice issues, but also educate the residence halls and the campus. Inclusivity and understanding are important values that I always try to use in my everyday life, and being a CUE only furthers those values.
Why do you think the CUE Program is important for IU?
The CUE Program provides an opportunity for students to feel heard in their residence halls. It is so important to create a welcoming environment for a residence hall, because it's not only where students sleep but also where they study, create new friendships, and learn many life skills. The CUE program has also educated me on many topics, even though its passive efforts like bulletin boards, which has proved to be eye-opening and insightful. The CUE program is a unique program to IU that makes all students feel comfortable where they live.
