“Improving the relationship between SGA and ISEC is pivotal. This can be as simple as just showing up,” Moore said. 

The major goal of ISEC is to provide assistance for students in marginalized communities. This includes providing tutoring services, financial aid and the celebration of cultural heritage months.

 “We are the one-stop shop for students in minority communities,” Moore said.
