MUSG   President   &    Executive   Vice   President

Representing all Students

The MUSG President and Executive Vice President (EVP), elected together as a ticket, are called to serve the Marquette undergraduate community and care for the mind, body, and soul of every Marquette student. They pull from their experiences as an involved Marquette student in order to make decisions that are best for the student body. These leaders recognize students as those who make Marquette what it is, and they constantly consider the interests of all students who call Marquette home.

 

The duo also has a responsibility to progress MUSG, for the benefit of students. This involves fostering an organizational environment that aligns with the MUSG Mission and Values, innovating internal and external processes, leading multiple teams and committees, and building those within MUSG to become future leaders. The MUSG President and EVP must be self-starters, and must motivate themselves and others to accomplish the initiatives and many tasks involved in their roles.
