Senior Policy Advisor
Makiah Shipp (she/her) is a sophomore majoring in African American studies with a minor in Community Action and Social Change. Makiah is the youngest member to serve on Ann Arbor's Independent Community Police Oversight Commission. As CSG’s Senior Policy Advisor for Anti-Racism she plans to engage BIPOC students on campus in an effort to create a more suitable and comfortable space for them. Makiah looks forward to spearheading the initiative to reimagine the way in which campus policing currently functions. She also advocates for increased funding for organizations and programs working to increase Black admissions and retention rates. Additionally, she would like to work towards increasing student of color admissions processes at the graduate level by bridging the gap between undergrad and the graduate process through accessible seminars and panels for students to attend to receive valuable information well before embarking on the grad school process.
