OCIS looking for new student leadership

Steven and I have had a very fruitful experience working as student representatives for OCIS. It has not only allowed us to make a difference in the community, but has introduced us to so many new people who we perhaps wouldn’t have had a chance to meet so easily.

As my tenure as student rep runs out, we are looking for fresh blood to take over. We already have a couple of very dedicated students who have volunteered to run for the position of student-rep. We need one more student now. If you feel excited about this, write to us (Steven Johnson at steven.l.johnson@gmail.com or Tanu Ghosh at tanu@mit.edu). The roles and responsibilities are described below.

And just in case you need to learn more about OCIS, heres the link to the division website: http://ocis.aomonline.org/
