Outgoing Student Council president reflects on initiatives to support marginalized communities

Fourth-year College student Alex Cintron is the first Latinx Student Council president in the University’s history.

As the first Latinx Student Council president in the University’s history Cintron said that, while he felt uncomfortable in some environments which the position required him to engage with, his perspective empowered him to act differently than previous Student Council presidents.

“This is my form of resisting what has been the normal narrative for Student Council president,” Cintron said.
