Hi, Notre Dame! My name is Allison Sharp, and I am honored to serve as your Judicial Council Vice-President of Peer Advocacy. I am a transfer student part of the Class of 2023, and am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, but currently live in Ryan Hall on campus.

I am a Political Science major, and am also pursuing a minor in Constitutional Studies. Outside of Judicial Council, I am Ryan Hall’s SUB Representative, a member of the Academic Affairs Department of the Student Union, and am also involved in College Democrats and Solidarity ND. My experience with student government started my freshman year at my previous university before transferring to Notre Dame, where I served on a student engagement committee and helped implement the school’s first peer advocate program. After transferring in the fall of my sophomore year, I immediately got involved with student government here at ND, and served on the Judicial Council Election Committee for the 2020-2021 year. 

As Judicial Council Vice-President of Peer Advocacy for the 2021-2022 term, my priorities are as follows:

  1. Raise Awareness of Peer Advocacy: Increase the student body’s awareness of the Peer Advocacy program and better educate the public on what the program truly does through the use of social media and hall representatives.

  2. Increase Student and Staff Involvement: Bolster the involvement of both students and staff in the Peer Advocacy program by appointing more Peer Advocates and advisors to assist with operations.

  3. Improve Students’ Rights: Better communicate the University’s Standards of Conduct and ensure due process in the Conduct Process in cooperation with the Office of Community Standards.
