Maddie Gile is running for the position of Representative-at-Large for CU Student Government. She is a sophomore, studying International Affairs and Leadership, and is confident that her skills and coursework will serve her well in making decisions for the student body. In her free time she enjoys hanging out with her friends and volunteering. She is originally from Fort Collins, Colorado. Throughout high school, she was heavily involved with multiple service learning organizations as well as leadership development programs. Most notable of these include her position as Executive Board President for Global Leaders. This nonprofit allowed students to foster their passion for volunteer work in their local community and abroad in Guatemala.
At CU, she is a member of the Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women and assists in the Event Planning and Philanthropy committees. Additionally, she is a Presidents Leadership Scholar, and engages in a variety of leadership development activities and classes. One of the initiatives Maddie hopes to achieve is connecting all of the student organizations on campus. This will benefit everyone and create an even closer student community. Serving others and learning to be a better leader and citizen is her biggest passion and she is excited to utilize these skills within the greater arena of CU Student Government.
As a member of the Elevate ticket, Maddie feels very strongly about all the platforms and initiatives her team is pursuing. Her ticket’s dedication to push sexual assault prevention, safety programs, transportation reform and student experience is paramount. Among the platforms, Maddie feels strongly about sexual assault prevention and has given over 20 hours in sexual assault prevention presentations in Fort Collins. Here in Boulder, she hopes to strengthen the curriculum surrounding this pressing issue for students and staff. Maddie feels grateful for the rest of her ticketmates, who are equally passionate about the issues Elevate is trying to address. As a whole, Maddie hopes to see the campus transform to an even more inclusive, efficient, and safe environment for student and staff.
