Secretary of the Student Government
Kris Schneider (he, him, his) is a sophomore in the School of Communication and is pursuing a double major in journalism with a broadcast track and political science with a concentration in public policy. He is in his second year as a part of AUSG, and was appointed to the position by President Torriente in late September 2016 and was confirmed by the Undergraduate Senate.
Kris keeps the interests of the student body at the forefront of everything he does. As he tells basically everyone he knows, one of the most engaging and rewarding experiences he has had at AU was working with a team of University and WMATA officials to bring the UPass to AU. It's the opportunity to bring tangible change to campus that inspires Kris as a student leader.
He has interned for the State Department and currently works as a Digital Engagement Intern for the Department of Commerce. You'll find him on campus in various places in MGC, on the quad, or in McKinley.
