Our executive board is comprised of some of the most distinguished students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn spanning across majors and disciplines. Together they manage the day-to-day operations of the Association to ensure that we continue to stay true to our vision.
If you’re up for the challenge, new officers are voted in at the end of each Fall semester. But hey, no worries! You don’t have to become an officer to make an impact – feel free to reach out to any of us with suggestions for the Association.
