My name is Stephanie Mitts, and I am running for the College of Science Student Senator position. I am a senior majoring in Geology. I have been involved at Weber for the majority of my time on campus, participating in multiple organizations and working in multiple offices, including the Environmental Ambassadors, the Science Technology and Engineering Program, Facilities Management, the Undergraduate Research Office, WSUSA Senate, and the Center for Community Engaged Learning. During my involvement on campus I have had the chance to become familiar with the political climate of Weber through funding applications, policy and project implementation, and cross college collaboration. I have also completed multiple research projects and internships, including working in Washington D.C. for a semester. Because of these experiences, I know that I can work to accomplish many great things for you, the College of Science constituents.
I will do this by working with existing clubs and the Center for Community Engaged Learning to create community partnerships, orchestrating interdisciplinary events, supporting a fresh dialogue, and promoting student research to stimulate WSU’s research culture.
I believe that College of Science students should be provided with opportunities to network, cross collaborate, and research so they may graduate prepared for continued education or immediate employment. I want you to feel confident moving on to the next step in your career when you graduate from the College of Science at Weber.
I would be honored to have the opportunity to represent you as the College of Science student senator. Let’s work together to cultivate your future.
