What is the Student Advisory Board?
The Board is a group of seven student volunteer leaders who help GU Politics plan and execute various aspects of programming. The SAB is led by co-chairs (undergraduate and McCourt graduate student) who oversee chairs focused on the following areas: Career, Communications, Fellows, Forum & Events, and Student Experience & Outreach.
Susanna Blount (C ’21), Co-Chair of the Student Advisory Board (2020-2021)
How can I get involved?
Applications to join the SAB open August 16, 2021 for this academic year. Over the course of the Fall and Spring semester, any Georgetown student is welcome to get involved with Fly on the Wall, On the Record, Student Strategy Teams, GU Votes, or any of GU Politics’ student-run organizations. The SAB periodically holds general interest meetings throughout the year for students who are interested in learning more about these opportunities.
Stacie Hartman (SFS ’21), Co-Chair of the Student Advisory Board (2020-2021)
How does the SAB interact with other student organizations?
The SAB is involved in creating partnerships with countless organizations across campus, from political organizations, to organizations focused on student governance, to social clubs. We are constantly seeking new perspectives to make our programming stronger and more relevant to the Georgetown community!
Javon Price (SFS ’21), Campus Ambassador (2020-2021)
Can graduate students join the SAB?
Yes! The McCourt Chair is a specific position on the SAB dedicated to amplifying GU Politics program to the McCourt community. However, any graduate student at Georgetown is eligible to join the SAB in any position or a Student Strategy Team, as well as participate in Experiential trips.
Hannah Friedman (MPP ’21), McCourt Chair (2020-2021)
Can students on the SAB also be involved in other activities at GU Politics?
Throughout my time at GU Politics, I’ve served as a student strategy team member, a student producer for Fly on the Wall, attended GU Politics trips, and have been involved in the SAB as a volunteer and as a co-chair. It’s up to you to choose the path that suits you, whether it’s one opportunity or multiple at the same time!
