The Vice President? Who is that?

I wrote a lot of side notes [pointing to her draft of the policy], and it was along the lines of [...] how is a person going to get support? Who is a person going to talk to? I know it's clearly there, but for a student to look at that and be like, "Oh, I have to talk to the vice president ... Who is that? It should be someone who is known. Like, "Hey, if you need help, you should be able to talk to this person," not the vice president. That seems kind of scary and intimidating.
