I became a member of the Graduate Council in 2016, and have had the pleasure of serving as President of the Graduate Council from 2017 to 2019. During this time, I focused on two main goals: strengthening and enlarging the Graduate Council so that we could improve our role of advocating for graduate students at RPI, and building a stronger and more unified graduate community at RPI. Some highlights include years of graduate stipend increases, reduction in graduate Union activity fees, successful Constitutional Amendments, guaranteed representation by all schools of RPI and the BGSA – as well as many popular graduate focused events, both social and professional.
