Drew Favors

Hey, y’all! My name is Drew and I am so thrilled to announce my candidacy for IUGA’s next President. As a rising senior at the University of Washington with a passion for Informatics, I have also been able to hold a position within IUGA over the past year as your Director of Academic Support. I have demonstrated leadership, dedication, and a commitment to excellence in all of my endeavors. I firmly believe that I can bring these qualities to the role of President and make a positive impact on the IUGA community. Over the past three years, I have committed myself wholly to Informatics upon my discovery of the major as an out-of-state freshman with no major. I have actively participated in IUGA events, workshops, and meetings and, as both a student and as the Director of Academic Support, gained valuable insights into the needs and concerns of informatics students and developed a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing our community. As President, I would strive to enhance the overall experience of IUGA members by fostering an inclusive and collaborative environment that promotes growth, creativity, and innovation. I would continue the work of increasing the visibility of Informatics & IUGA on campus by collaborating with other student organizations and creating new partnerships with departments and faculty. Lastly, I would strive in providing adequate resources and career opportunities for students to develop technical and soft skills, including resume & career workshops as well as various industry panels.I believe that my experience, skills, and passion make me an ideal candidate for the role of President of IUGA. I am committed to creating a vibrant and supportive community that will empower informatics students to succeed and thrive. I hope to have your support in this journey.
