Neil Harwani has been selected as the 2017-2018 Chair of the Carolina Union Board of Directors. He is a junior from Greensboro, North Carolina, majoring in Business Administration.
The Board of Directors Chair is the representative of the Board and the student face of the Union. Harwani is no stranger to the Carolina Union. He served his sophomore year as CUAB’s Union Programming chair; this year he serves as both CUAB President and Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors. In addition to his positions within the Carolina Union, Harwani has been involved with large-scale events, such as the Jubilee spring concert and the Holi Moli festival. He believes his extensive experience in a variety of leadership positions and committees will serve him well as Chair.
“I’ve been involved in both small and large student organizations, and I’ve had the opportunity to build relationships with both students and administrators. I look forward to working cohesively to enact change,” Harwani said.
This year’s feasibility study will be a key focus for the Board of Directors moving forward. “I’m going to focus on getting the results of the feasibility study in front of as many students as possible,” Harwani said. He encourages student involvement as the Union moves forward.
“I think the results of the study are jaw dropping,” Harwani said. “I hope students take time to analyze the results; they’ll be very intrigued moving forward. Exciting stuff is happening in the Union.”
