Kogod Senator

The Kogod Undergraduate Business Association is a member of the American University Student Government, as such, we require one of our members to be our representative in the undergraduate senate. Therefore we are looking for a student to join the Executive Board as Kogod Senator.

The senator will report directly to the Executive Board and be in attendance at all the meetings unless previously stated. The senator will provide a presence in the senate and hold Kogod’s best interest at heart as we look to increase our presence as a part of American University.
