Siddharth Agarwal, PhD
I am a third year student in the PhD program in Mechanical Engineering department in the Bourns College of Engineering. Some background information about me: I am from India. I have served in the Graduate student association (GSA) previously as a member of the Conference travel grants (CTG) committee, as the academic affairs officer for the Bourns college of Engineering (BCOE) and also as a rep from Bioengineering graduate student association (BIG-GSA). I am happy to connect with you if you have any further questions about me. Please feel free to contact me via email or walk in my office hours on Wednesdays, 4:00pm to 5:00pm at Bourns A368.
"I am Siddharth Agarwal, and I am extremely excited to be running for the VPAA position for the UCR GSA. I have many fresh ideas to bring to the GSA. Having served on the conference travel grant committee and Committee on Library and Information Technology, I intend to use my experience to further improve graduate student life. As VPAA, I will organize innovative, new events to unite our student body, and strengthen our presence in the larger UCR community. To make these events exciting and successful, there is no substitute for good leadership and great organization, two of the many qualities that I will carry into my position on the council. UCR is a major, usable resource, and I will work hard, incorporating your ideas with mine, to maximize the potential of our GSA student body."
