SCIA Goals:
SCIA activities are divided into alumni/donor projects and legislative projects. Alumni/donor projects are led by  senior Jennifer Bailey and Greta Salamando. Legislative projects are led by senior Stanley Yuan and Dr. Rushi.

Together, these four lead SCIA students in achieving four goals every year:

  1. Strengthening relationships with IMSA alumni and legislators
  2. Building strong relationships with Illinois legislators by showcasing the achievements and work of IMSA’s students
  3. Developing students’ abilities to be leaders among their peers, and with legislators, donors and faculty
  4. Building a platform for student outreach to expand awareness of our events and activities to IMSA students and to our external constituents

SCIA collaboratively works with the President’s Office, Office of Development, student organizations, faculty and staff in departments across IMSA to achieve its goals.

In partnership with the IMSA Alumni Association, SCIA plans and executes many activities to connect current students with alumni and donors. Please visit www.imsaalumni.org or contact Greta Salamando for more information on SCIA-alumni activities.
