Erikah Cudjoe

Hey everyone! My name is Erikah, and I am currently a senior pursuing Business Information Systems and Legal Studies on a pre-law track. Outside of SGB, I’m involved as a Pathfinder, Global Ambassador, Programming Chair for the Honors College Student Council, Fundraising Chair for the African Students Organization, and a Research Fellow for the Elsie Hillman Honors Scholars Program.

As the Chair of the D&I Committee, I look forward to working with my committee and the rest of SGB to build a more culturally-aware and inclusive atmosphere here at Pitt.
