Here at Neumont University we pride ourselves on our small, close-knit community. Staff and faculty strive to ensure every student is supported during their time here so that you can graduate on time and get hired in the tech industry. One of the key groups, staff and faculty discuss current student issues with is the Unified Student Government.
The group is elected by their peers. They meet weekly to discuss issues on campus and ways Neumont University can be improved. USG is responsible for implementing new policy and procedures that impacts every students experience here. The organization has the final vote on all clubs and organizations that are formed at Neumont in addition to providing feedback to academics and student life.
Currently, we are seeking to reboot USG and filling all positions. This means it's your opportunity to run for office and make Neumont a better place.
The application process for the executive team has closed. Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates run separately. This week Dani Meyer, Jordan Slaven, and John Ngo will campaign for president. Meanwhile, Shane Roleaux, Daniel Nostrom, and Sai Dilip Ponnoaganti will campaign for vice president.
Students running for President and Vice President will present stump speeches in The Commons at 12 p.m. on Thursday, July 14. Voting for those positions will take place on Friday, July 15. The new President and Vice President will be announced on Monday.
