We at the Wheel endorse Michelle Feldman for Student Programming Council (SPC) Vice President. Feldman currently serves in SPC as the Dooley’s Week Co-Chair and has tremendous experience and knowledge of the organization.

As part of Feldman’s initiatives, she helped expand “SPC with Love,” an event that focuses on random acts of kindness toward students, like massages in the library. She intends to focus on creating a unified and inclusive College community while also bridging a relationship between Emory’s undergraduate and graduate students. Feldman has already taken the initiative to achieve these goals by meeting with the leaders of Emory’s diverse campus networks, like the Office of Multicultural Programs and Services (OMPS), Emory Pride, Greek councils and the Graduate Student Government Association (GSGA).

Feldman also intends to create strong communication between Emory students and SPC by developing a SPC open-doors system where students can share their opinions and feedback. We would like to encourage Feldman to pursue these efforts and suggest that such a system be located in an easily accessible and visible area on campus where there is a lot of student presence.

Ultimately, we feel Feldman’s commitment to creating a more unified and inclusive Emory community is one that our SPC Presidential candidate endorsee, Niyeti Shah​, is equally dedicated to. Having a SPC President and Vice President who share similar goals for the organization is an advantage for the Emory community as a whole, as students may have greater trust and faith that the SPC representatives will work together and cohesively towards accomplishing goals that serve the Emory community’s best interests.
