Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has appointed Anjali Patel of Evansville, Indiana, to the University of Southern Indiana Board of Trustees. Effective July 1, she will serve as a student trustee for two years.
Patel, a junior, is a biology major and a Baccalaureate to Medical Doctor Scholar. She is a participant in the Honors Program, actively involved in the Pre-Professional Health Club and Timmy Global Health and maintains a 3.5 cumulative GPA. She works as a resident assistant for Housing and Resident Life and previously worked as an AMIGO. Patel is involved in Student Ambassadors, Southern Indiana Dance Marathon, the Student Alumni Association and Volunteer USI.
Patel said that she is eager to serve as a trustee "not only to represent USI's exceptional student body, but also to emphasize why USI is a place I am extremely thankful and proud to call home."
The student trustee, a voting member of the nine-member USI Board of Trustees, brings a student's perspective to the governing board. The student trustee must be a full-time student, a U.S. citizen and resident of Indiana, have a 2.5 GPA or above, and have completed 24 semester credit hours at USI.
