responsive to the voices and needs of our diverse Humphrey community. As Humphrey students, we must build bridges and break down walls, taking actionable steps to be accountable to each other and our common goals. As part of my work as President, I will implement opportunities for feedback and evaluation of PASA programming and opportunities, evaluate our performance in the Humphrey student community and our student led groups, see where we can grow, and work with the board to do so. Additionally, I want to tailor our events to better meet the broad policy interests of our student community.
Do you have an idea or a concern? Let’s talk.
I happen to be experienced at doing those super fun things like taking meeting minutes and tracking down people to sign things [full disclosure in the interest of transparency because we are a school of public affairs: flied; these things are not actually much fun). When not in meetings, I like to go hiking, play baseball, throw a Frisbee around, or join a board game party. Two things I would like to emphasize while serving on the PASA executive committee are collaborations across the different degree programs and ways in which students can help catalyze further discussions around diversity and inclusion.
I look forward to the opportunity to get involved in expanding involvement in Humphrey community activities as well as keeping tabs on the funds.
I’m open to any and all suggestions! If you’ve got an event in mind or even just an activity you ‘d like to extend to everyone, don ‘t hesitate to email me and we could make it a Humph Night.
I would like to create transparency between students and the Dean on program requirements so they don’t seem arbitrary. I think this would help foster a more united Humphrey. After all , we are going to school to get a job so everyone should see how their degree relates to their life goals.
Finally, Humphrey is a top ranked Public Affairs school and I want us to be proud to be top-ranked students, and have our curriculum reflect the advanced level we aspire to be.
I’m proud of the work done by students of the MURP, MS-STEP, MPA, MDP, MHR, MPP and PhD programs. I’d like to serve as representative for the MURP program to strengthen the bonds between all programs within the Humphrey School.
And I won’t rest until we have vending machines in every classroom.
She worked in different projects related to the human rights field , especially in transitional justice focused on human rights violations of the Chilean dictatorship. She was recently awarded a Fulbright and U of M. Scholarship to pursue a Master of Human Rights.
The ongoing impact of the digital revolution on course materials (particularly in higher education) is something I spend a great deal of time thinking about as I have worked for the University of Minnesota Bookstores for over 15 years, where my oversight includes textbook developments and managerial operations of our branch stores.
What I hope to bring to PASA is a good understanding of committee work and the University climate. My former role as an educator may also be useful in looking at curriculum and program design issues.
When I was doing my undergraduate degree at Augsburg College, I was in the Bonner Leaders program which is a civic and community engagement program, I became the senior representative in my senior year and worked closely with the adviser of the program in order to create relevant events for the students as well as spearheaded the senior retreat where Bonner seniors held a full day workshop for the classes below us to pass the knowledge we have been provided through the years. My position as the senior representative was to advocate for all the students wants and needs to the director and vice versa. I’m running for this position in order for the MDP cohort to know that they are part of the Humphrey community and to showcase our program and the many
benefits to the larger community here at the Humphrey.
