Student trustee candidate Alexis Marvel spoke at the March 28 debate. Neither of her opponents in the election, Bianca Baldassarre, or Dehigar Ramirez, attended the debate.

Marvel said, “As student trustee, student empowerment is something I would be especially passionate about. When it came time to choose a college, UMass Boston was my only choice. I didn’t apply anywhere else. I am extremely defensive of the diversities here on campus and I am extremely passionate about it and grateful for it. That is where my drive comes from. I want to maintain that diversity by making sure we have accessible and affordable education that serves the working class which is what public higher education is supposed to be.”
