Student Helps Unveil New Student Center
Aishwarya Iyer, joined Dr. Bruce Jarrell, President of University of Maryland, Baltimore, for a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of the new Student Affairs Suites (third and fourth from left, respectively). Aishwarya is a GS 2 MSTP student and president of the University Student Government Association (USGA). She introduced Dr. Jarrell during the event and later thanked UMB and Student Affairs leaders for their commitment to student achievement and well-being, singling out Cyndi Rice, director of student development and leadership.
“I’m standing here today because of the dedication of individuals like Ms. Rice,” she said. “In their work, they continually prioritize the needs of students, which extended to ensuring that USGA maintained our dedicated space in the Student Affairs suite.
“Within this space, USGA holds small meetings between our officers, meets with students to discuss their ideas or concerns, and consistently thinks of ways to better advocate for students. And, more importantly, the dedicated space showcases the University’s commitment to fostering student leaders and listening to amplify their voices.”
