Vice President for Governance

Derek Dressler

Hi Panthers! My name is Derek Dressler and I am honored to serve as your Vice President of Governance for the 2022-23 school year. I am from Pleasanton, California majoring in Political Science and Legal Studies with minors in Psychology and Spanish. This year I am excited to get to work improving the way we live, learn and, grow during our collegiate years here at Pitt. My main focuses include improving all aspects of off-campus living, working to freeze tuition during this winter of economic uncertainty, and ensuring that every member of the Pitt community has access to vote by making future election days a school holiday. More than any of my initiatives, however, I want to listen and act on your concerns and suggestions. My email is and I am always here to fight for you. Hail to Pitt!
