Board Member

Alison Linares Mendoza

Hi everyone! My name is Alison and I am super excited to be serving as the Academic Affairs Liaison Board Member for this school year. My two years at Pitt have been amazing so far, but I think there is also room to grow in how Student Government Board interacts with the rest of the student organizations and what we do to improve your college experience. That’s why I am looking forward to working with the rest of the Board Members this year to seek and implement change for the better.

During my time serving in this position I want to make sure our organization and workflow are constantly tailored to meet the diverse needs of our students on campus and that we’re not held back from continuous improvement just because “it’s always been done this way”. I look forward to getting to work with many of you and putting the time and effort it takes for us to achieve the goals that we set. If you see me around on campus don’t hesitate to say hi and if there’s ever something you want to talk about stop by during office hours and I’d love to hear all about it! Looking forward to a great year 😊
