Goodspeed Intern Welcome Message

Welcome fellow Gauchos to the 2017-2018 academic school year at UCSB!

My name is Hailey Phelan, and I’m honored to serve as the 2017-2018 Stephen S. Goodspeed intern in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. I am currently a fourth year student pursuing a B.A. in Global Studies with minors in French and Professional Writing.  In addition to working as the Goodspeed Intern, I also work as a Resident Assistant in the Undergraduate Apartments. 

As the Goodspeed Intern, it is my goal to continually strive for a safer, more welcoming campus environment for our diverse student body. I believe that by utilizing existing resources, we can target common issues faced by students and do more to aid them on their path to academic success and personal growth.

Additionally, I plan to work closely and effectively with students and student leaders to help them create positive change in the areas they find most necessary. I will serve as a liaison between the student voice and Student Affairs administration to ensure representation and bring awareness to student issues.

I strongly encourage you to become involved in your community here at UCSB. As a student, your voice matters! Our community has the ability to have profound impact on each individual as well as the world around us; you could play an instrumental role in that just by getting involved.

I look forward to another extraordinary school year here at UCSB. Every day, I see more and more opportunities being made available to students, and more and more students being successful because of them.

I am very grateful to be given this opportunity to give back to our campus and represent my fellow Gauchos. I wish you all an excellent academic year and I hope we will continue to work together to grow and strengthen our Gaucho community.
