Hi, Wolfpack family! I am Colin Beamer, a senior majoring in Political Science-International Politics, with a minor in Italian Studies. I am honored to serve as the Chief of Staff for the Executive Branch of Student Government, and thrilled to be a part of such an influential body, with the goals of making institutional change for the betterment of your college experience.

What does the Chief of Staff do?

The role of Chief of Staff varies from administration to administration, but consistently, the Chief of Staff serves as the chief student-advisor to the Student Body President and Student Body Vice President, as well as the internal manager of the Executive Branch. As a part of my personal fulfilment of this role, I serve as a logistics champion for all departments under the Executive Branch with the hope of being a resource and advocate to empower our student-leaders to constantly improve.

Greatness is not an achievement. It is, rather, a state of maintenance.

What does the Executive Assistant do?

Part of establishing a great leadership team is having a right-hand person to make things happen. Meredith has always been that person and continues to serve the student body in more ways than one. The position of Executive Assistant is one filled to the preference of an administration and the person who fills it. Traditionally, this role has been to assist with the logistics, the planning and execution of meetings, taking minutes and documenting, and assisting the Student Body President and Student Body Vice President on a number of administrative tasks.

However, Meredith has gone above and beyond the call of duty. In her short term so far, she has been an integral part of planning initiatives, running meetings, acting as an adviser and coach, participating in events with Student Government and other organizations, and she continues to be a voice for the executive branch in all of her many activities throughout campus.

More about Meredith

Meredith is incredibly excited and honored to be joining the Executive department! She has previously served as a Student Senator for the College of Engineering and will be on the Student Centers Board of Directors this year. She is very active in the University Honors Program where she works as an Honors Fellow and sits on the UHP Advisory Board. As a Junior in Mechanical Engineering, Meredith is typically found in the Student Government Suite crying over her calculator and wiping her tears away with engineering paper. She is incredibly passionate about gender equality, 3D printers, performing arts, and corgis! Her goals for the upcoming school year are to create a Student Government branch consistently open to all students, moderate SG Town Halls, and create meaningful programs that will serve the entirety of the student body.
