Olivia Tarpley, DIRECTOR OF CLUBS AND CAMPUS RELATIONS
GRADUATE LEADERSHIP COUNCIL – American University
My name is Olivia Tarpley (she/her) and I am the new Director of Clubs and Campus Relations. I am excited to get involved with the Graduate Leadership Council here at AU! I am a first-year graduate student in the School of Education in the Education Policy and Leadership Program. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). At UNCG, I was involved with our Student Government Association, the orientation team, a group of peer mentors for new students, and other various student organizations throughout my time there. My final year as an undergraduate student, I was Vice President of Campus Outreach for the statewide Association of Student Governments representing the concerns of 230,000 students in North Carolina. These experiences gave me the opportunity to be in community with fellow students and make improvements related to the student experience. So far, I have started my time as Director of Clubs and Campus Relations by making connections with liaisons and other graduate student leaders. I look forward to working together to contribute to the graduate student community and experience here at AU. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or just to connect by emailing me at email@example.com.
