Academic Affairs

Josh Hanley

My name is Josh Hanley, and I am majoring in history and political science with a minor in Spanish. I am honored to serve my fellow students as a part of SGB, and I’m involved in several other things on campus, but the really important thing is I’m an avid Pitt and Pittsburgh sports fan. If I’m not on campus, there’s a good chance I’m at some sporting event- a Pirates game, Steelers game, or even one of my younger brother’s little league games. During my time as chair, I hope to continue to provide students with a seat at the table when important decisions about academics are being made.

In the life of every honorable man there comes a difficult moment… when the simple statement ‘this is black and that is white’ requires paying a high price
