PSC Student Representatives for 2018-19
students elected the following students to be their representatives in departmental governance matters.
have taken political science classes since I started at DePaul and love our
department just as much you do. Over the
last few years, we’ve seen DePaul’s administration have serious issues with
transparency and communication with the student body, and that’s why I believe
it is essential that political science students have peers willing to act as
advocates for them. I want to work
together with you to make sure that the university community is as welcoming
for you as possible, and that we continue to make our department one of the
best places to study at DePaul University.
I’ve been working in politics for years, first as an
election judge, then as an elected precinct committeeman, and now as a current
candidate for DuPage County Board! As a
Friend of the Pod and previous intern with the DuPage County Democrats, I’m all
about civic engagement and fostering community.
Getting DePaul political science students more involved in the
department and their professors as a student representative is exactly what
I’ll love to do! As a political science student
representative, I’ll also work to host events on campus like political speakers
and candidate debates, get students involved in the department’s social media
with things like Instagram takeovers, and sponsor other fun activities to
create a tight-knit political science community for both students and faculty,
regardless of party!
I am a political science
and economics student. Throughout my academic and professional career, I have
been actively engaged in the exploration of political science and a vast number
of opportunities offered by this field. This past year, I interned at the
global anti-corruption organization Transparency International and the
Consulate General of the Republic of Lithuania in Chicago. These two extraordinary opportunities to work
alongside passionate activists, foreign leaders, and representatives of
international organizations have helped me define and understand the necessity
of effective and just leadership in any field. I believe that my professional focus on
integrity, teamwork, and empowerment is essential in order to unify and
strengthen the relationships within the political science department. We are a group of passionate, intelligent, and
caring individuals. I believe that with
the right guidance and productive cooperation with our professors, we can
create a highly effective and powerful learning environment for us all.

I am double-majoring in political science and economics with
minors in German and mathematics. I have enjoyed my experience as a PSC
student and my time at DePaul in general. My academic interests include
comparative politics, urban development, transportation, economic and political
history, and foreign policy. I am interested in serving as a PSC
Representative because I love to get involved with my instructors and I want to
help the Political Science program be as great for everyone as it has been for

am originally from Michigan. I am a
junior and a political science major with double minors in Spanish and economics.
I truly love this department and all it
has to offer us. However, I would like
more student engagement and would love to help bring your voice to the faculty.
I want to ensure that policies enacted
are not just good for us at the current time but will continue to grow the
reputation of our department in the future, while keeping a focus on what
matters: the students.
