 Joey Daniewicz, Parliamentarian

Major: Mathematics

About: I’m Joey Daniewicz, and I attended UMM from 2009-2014. During my tenure there, I gained a love for student involvement, serving as a state board member of MPIRG, the Editor-in-Chief of The University Register, Co-chair of our Campus Assembly’s Consultative Committee, an MCSA Executive Committee member, and the Student Representative to the Board of Regents. Back then I discovered a deep appreciation for student government, governing documents, and procedure. Since my original tenure here, I’ve dabbled in political organizing in the Twin Cities. Now I’m back for one last year to finish up my degree in mathematics, and I’m humbled to serve the MCSA in this advisory role. My pet issues are campus governing structures and procedures (obviously) and building student power at all costs.
