Hello and welcome to the Politics and International Studied Association. Over the past year we have been working hard to restructure PISA in order to make it more inclusive, expansive and exciting for all students in our department. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce the new Winter 2020 PISA Executive.
Though we do have a 10 person executive, our group is made up of every Bishop's student enrolled in the politics and/or international studies department. Throughout the school year we will run many events and advertise opportunities that are available to students in our department. Feel free to send us an email, a facebook message or a message on Instagram if you have any questions. We are here to help you!
Here is an opportunity to meet your Winter 2020 Executives!
Jonas Viles: President
Hi POL Gaiters! My name is Jonas and I’m a fourth year student in the Honours Politics program. I’m from St. Johnsbury, Vermont, just south of the US border. I’ve been involved with BU PISA since my second year and I’m thrilled to see where the club is today. If you ever see me around in class or at the library, don’t hesitate to ask me about opportunities within the department or PISA.
When I was in my first year, a group of upperclassmen facilitated BU POLs first delegation to the Political Science Games in Quebec. Those same students inspired and encouraged me to become involved with student leadership. These types of activities have been so meaningful to me, and I hope that as a senior I can provide similar support to underclassmen interested in student involvement.
