First-Gen Leadership: Call for Interested Students
Sunday, April 12 at 1 PM in Wilson 105. The newly formed First Generation student organization is seeking to identify its inaugural leadership: co-presidents and committee heads for Campus Resources, Community Building, Transition to College, Life After Brown, and Mentoring. If you are interested in running please e-mail Mya_Roberson@brown.edu with your name, class year, what you want to run for, if you can make the Sunday meeting and a brief statement (a paragraph or less) on why you think you're a good fit for this position. Candidates who can make the meeting will read their statements to the group. Candidates who cannot, will have their statements read on their behalf. Following the meeting Mya will e-mail out a voting form as well as a document containing all candidates statements so those who cannot attend the meeting can still make an informed vote.
