With Us


Sarah Chamberlin - MPA (President)

I believe that in order to have successful relationships between students and administration, there needs to be clear communication and a respectful environment where everyone can feel engaged, supported and invigorated.  As the ASGC President I feel compelled to support our student body to pursue professional development, networking opportunities and recognition within our cohort.  I look forward to building a foundation of open communication and partnership between students, administration and graduate programs within the Arts and Sciences and beyond.  I hope to build on the work that has been done before me and forge ahead into the 2017-2018 academic year with fresh ideas and inspiration.
