Who can be talked to?

I don’t think that there’s enough visibility for people who can be talked to. Like, I know [...] that you were discussing the people that could be spoken to, [...] but as somebody who's been on campus for – on and off – for about four years now [...] this [focus group about the SV/SA policy] is probably the first time I’ve ever actually known who I could go to. However, um, who they are [...] and how to contact them is still very much unknown to me.
