Subj:   Introducing the 2021-2022 Undergraduate Student Government Executive Board Officers, Cabinet Directors, and Executive Cabinet Restructuring

Greetings,

As the newly elected Student Body President and Undergraduate Student Government President, it is a privilege for me to introduce to you all the 2021-2022 Undergraduate Student Government Executive Board Officers and Cabinet Directors. 

Moreover, it is an honor to share with you all the restructuring and overhaul of the Executive Branch to better advance and propel the Undergraduate Student Government as a quality advocacy body. As part of the incoming administration, the Cabinet of the Undergraduate Executive Branch has been restructured to consist of five departments so as to streamline efficiency and efficacy by which the Branch can work to support and serve Carolina’s Student Body through fulfilling policy priorities as set forth in our platform

Each Department will be supervised by a Director, and will be supported by Assistant Directors, Coordinators, and other positions as outlined by the scope of the policy priorities these Departments will be tasked with for the upcoming year. I am proud to also introduce these Directors below.

This past year has been far from “perfect” or “normal.” As members of the Carolina community, we have had to face unprecedented difficulty while navigating unparalleled uncertainty. This coming year, however, must not serve as a roadblock to the change-making we know is and will continue to be possible through student advocacy and promoting equity and inclusion, focusing on ensuring progress and prosperity for all, here at Carolina. We look forward to working with you to ensure this is the case.

Yours for Carolina,

Lamar G. Richards
