Experienced Leader Ready to Continue Making Change
Hi everyone! My name is Alex Ballard and I am running to be the next President of Chapman University's Student Government Association. I am a junior currently majoring in Political Science, Economics, and History. In addition, I am part of the University Honors Program, which is one of my favorite communities on campus!
Outside of SGA, I have been heavily involved across campus, including:
Vice President of Kappa Alpha Pi Pre-Law Fraternity
Membership Chair for Mortar Board Senior Collegiate Honor Society
Student Scholar Ambassador
I am a strong believer in the power of the student voice and I have worked tirelessly for 3 years to make changes that students want to see on campus. As the current SGA Upperclassmen Senator, I have worked on addressing campus sexual misconduct, resources for commuter students, expanding Laptops to Go, program advising across colleges, resources for graduate school preparation, student input in the Closing Convocation keynote speaker, and more.
Having experienced 3 years in SGA filled with administrative roadblocks on many issues, I believe more strongly than ever in the power of students to mobilize around issues important to students. It is when we come together and make a concentrated effort towards a goal that we will be successful. We must demonstrate the values of unity and action as a student body to improve the lives of students now and later. I hope you will join me on this journey to empower students and ensure that the University administration always makes decisions in our best interest!
