Most of my leadership experience here at RPI has been through my involvement in Student Government. I served as the Policies Committee Chairman and Undergraduate Council Representative to the Rensselaer Union Executive Board. As Policies Committee Chairman, I led the effort to consolidate all of the Union’s disparate rules into a singular Rensselaer Union Guidelines and Procedures document. As a member of the Executive Board, I help my assigned clubs and organizations with interfacing with the Union and also work to allocate the Union budget in ways to benefit as many students as possible. I’ve served on the Board since the beginning of my junior year. My sophomore year, I was the chairman of the Elections Commission of the Student Senate.
Since the beginning of my sophomore year, I’ve been the Lead System Administrator for the Rensselaer Union, a paid student employee role. In that role, I lead a team of 10 student employees to maintain the technical services that the Union provides to clubs/organizations and full time staff. These include development of the Club Management System, technical support for student government elections, and providing technical advice to clubs and student government as requested.
