Welcome from the President

Welcome Geisel Student Body!  I am Kristina Ali, and I am honored to serve as the 2023-2024 Student Body President. I have been continuously inspired by the strong community at Geisel and seeing how we work together to positively impact our learning experience, professional development, and personal growth. Our aim on Student Government is to amplify student voices, serve as liaisons between students and administration, and build an inclusive and supportive community.

Our primary goal this year will be to enhance student engagement so that our voices are integrated into all issues impacting the student body, including changes to grading policies and curriculum, improvements in diversity, equity, and inclusion in our education, professional development opportunities, and wellness initiatives. By including our student voice, we can create a stronger experience for us all.

In addition we want to strengthen community among students, faculty, and staff. We will work together to create stronger connections through events and programs that bring our Geisel community together, as well as our partners at DHMC and the broader Dartmouth community.

And finally this year we aim to improve communication between students and administration to ensure decision making is transparent and readily available to students, ultimately building greater trust. We will work with our faculty and staff to streamline updates to students that are vital to our success.

Our entire Student Government is dedicated to enhancing student life to contribute to the success of the Geisel community as a whole. Please reach out to me or any of your Student Government representatives with questions or concerns, we are always happy to hear from you. I am excited for this upcoming year and look forward to serving you.
