To best serve the student body, McKnight said he and his campaign team created their platform to give a voice to those without one.
“The whole point of our platform is empowering UNC,” McKnight said. “Empowering voices on this campus that are not being heard — especially students who have fallen through the cracks and don’t feel like they are being heard by student government, by the administration or even by their fellow students.”
McKnight said because of this, the major platform topics of his campaign are sexual assault prevention, mental health awareness, academic accessibility, affordability, veterans and athletes.
As student body president, he hopes to build upon the Three Zeros Initiative by partnering with the administration to provide more solar panels and more resources for students to recycle and compost.
