Lauren Schandevel

is a 4th year student at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, studying Public Policy with a minor in Community Action and Social Change. In January 2018, Lauren crowd-sourced a document called “Being Not-Rich at UM”, which served as a guide for low-income students on campus. Following the success of the guide, her and Griffin St. Onge founded Affordable Michigan — an organization devoted to lobbying on behalf of low-income University students. Upon graduating, Lauren will continue to fight for economic and racial justice in whatever capacity she can.
