Honors student Nedda Sarshar was named to the position of Representative to the Board of Trustees this summer. The Board of Trustees is the governing body of Syracuse University, responsible for the educational mission and fiscal policies of the University. Members of the Board guide the University toward its goals and vision and serve the public trust.
Nedda Sarshar is one of two new undergraduate representatives. A junior international student from Toronto, Canada, Sarshar is a dual major in writing and rhetoric and citizenship and civic engagement, pursuing a minor in English and textual studies. Sarshar currently serves as the president of the Residence Hall Association and is a member of the community service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega. Previously she served as director of civic engagement for the Residence Hall Association and as an assembly representative for the Student Association.
Chancellor Syverud looks forward to working with the new group who shares a collective passion and shared love for SU which will propel us forward. Syverud said, “I am eager to work with the entire Board of Trustees and to especially hear from the new voices at the table. This is an exciting time to be involved with the University.”
