Student Advisory Board

The College of Liberal Arts Student Advisory Board (SAB) is a team of students, representative of each degree department or program in the college, who work together to maintain and improve the satisfaction of liberal arts students regarding education and accessibility.

The SAB advocates for student issues within the College of Liberal Arts community; enhances student relationships with Student Government, the College and the University; and advises the Deans on student issues.

Public Policy Representative

As the current chair for SAB, this group has given me the opportunity to grow in my leadership role while continuing to be an advocate for the College of Liberal Arts’ student body.

I chose Public Policy because after college I want to be an advocate for those who don't necessarily have a voice and make change throughout my community.

Publicity Representative
Sociology/Anthropology Representative

My favorite part about SAB is that it allows people from different backgrounds and all walks of life to come together and share a common goal, which is to work with COLA students to improve their satisfaction regarding education and their college experience. It's so rewarding to be able to get involved in the RIT community and the greater Rochester community.

After I graduate, I want to gain research experience in the area of bio archaeology, medical anthropology, and transitional justice (I have a second major in Criminal Justice)! I also hope to attend graduate school to further my education. I would love to work in the field as a biological anthropologist and perhaps teach at the college level, making such information accessible for the D/HH community.

Digital Humanities and Social Sciences Representative

I joined the College of Liberal Arts Student Advisory Board very recently and have not gotten a chance to do much yet, but the thing I like the most about the SAB already is how welcoming and kind everyone is. I adore how each member is so passionate about providing great experiences for the people in the major they represent!

I honestly do not have a defined outlook of the future, but I hope I can work at an entertainment company and within digital media.

I chose to transfer to RIT and picked Digital Humanities and Social Sciences as a major simply because of how the major contains so much in one. I was undecided my first year of college, and could never commit to a major due to having too many interests. Digital Humanities and Social Sciences satisfies my interest in art/design, liberal arts, and learning about computer systems. I personally think that it is a perfect fit for me!

Economics Representative

One of my favorite aspects of SAB is the opportunity to collaborate with others. We are better equipped to complete our responsibilities and assist our peers when we work closely as a team.

I decided to major in Economics because I am fascinated by human decision-making and how our choices affect our communities and environment. It also offers versatility and depth that enhances the kinds of decisions people make and I think this is invaluable to a wide variety of employers. After college I look forward to pursuing a Masters in Business Administration.

International and Global Studies

I am honored to have the opportunity to support fellow students as a member of the COLA SAB!

After college, I intend on either going to graduate school for International Relations, or going straight into the workforce.

Philosophy Representative

I chose the philosophy major because I would like to become an educator after college. Being able to teach young minds and expand their education will always be a consistent goal for me. When it comes to SAB, I truly admire how they aspire to bring together and give more representation to all COLA students.
