Carson Hawk

My name is Carson Hawk, I’m a Junior here at Pitt, and this year I’m very excited to be serving as Pitt’s Allocations Chair. I’m a Political Science major and Econ minor, and this will be my third year on the committee. This academic year has seen and will continue to see some large-scale changes in the Allocations process, and I’m honored to be overseeing this transitory period. I’m looking forward to making the funding process as accessible as possible this year, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions at all — the committee is here to help all students across campus access the Activities Fund in an efficient and equitable manner.
