CHST Senator

Alecia Hart




Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Greetings, my name is Alecia Hart and I'm a third-year student in the Exercise Science program. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I am a Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) and Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) scholar. My leadership here at RIT began very early. I served as the Academic Success Chair for Unity House my second year, now the two-time President of the Caribbean Student Association, and was an Orientation Leader for 2022 incoming students. All while also managing two jobs, Welcome Center Attendant and Recreation Attendant/Supervisor. In addition, I have served as a panelist for the Exercise Science program to share my experience within the major. I have been involved as a general body member of many clubs/organizations and hope to do more for my college community.


The College of Health Science and Technology ranges from majors dealing with Ultrasound, Dietetics and Nutrition, Biomedical Sciences, Physician Assistant, and Exercise Science. For starters, there need to be equal opportunities for each major and the occupations they are trying to pursue. If elected as College of Health Science and Technology Senator, I hope to provide more resources for the college as a whole. For starters, when attending the Career Fair, some may describe it as impotent because no healthcare professions are present. Hosting our CHST Career Fair or suggesting companies would be a significant difference to the college. My next area of interest would be our professors. As someone who is in the Exercise Science program, there are a total of three professors that teach throughout our first three years. Working to hire more professors, for my major and CHST as a whole would be essential to improve our schedules. When students rise to their second year of college, they mainly seek research opportunities. Research opportunities are not well known within our college and currently two professors currently focus on research. Having more research opportunities for undergraduates would give us a more hands-on approach and informative experience before going out into the field. Although I am in the Exercise Science program, students throughout the college have expressed these concerns, and I want to make it my main focus. My overall goal as the College of Health Science and Technology is to improve the student experience and make them feel wanted at the college.
