This is our team for the year 2017! Meet the Board Members of the Woodbridge Society of International Students.
Freshman Representatives serve as the main liaison between the international freshman class and the Woodbridge Board and serve for a one-year term in which they work closely with the Director of International Freshman Affairs (DIFA) to organize events specifically oriented towards serving the needs of the freshman international community. In the past, these events have ranged from academic and advising oriented ones to study breaks, trips out of the Harvard bubble and many more!
The Outreach Committee functions as a link between Society members, the Harvard community, and the outside world. By interacting with other entities at Harvard and beyond, Outreach seeks to promote international awareness, bring the members of the community closer and foster the discussion on issues of international and cultural identity. It enables Woodbridge members to interact closely with entities both inside Harvard (Woodbridge members, other Harvard cultural groups, administrators, Houses, the Institute of Politics, faculty members, Nobel Prize winners) and outside (other Boston-area universities, international corporate sponsors, NGOs).
The Publicity and Student Liaisons Committee is relatively new, but plays a crucial role in every aspect of the Woodbridge International Society. The committee works closely with the rest of the Woodbridge committees to ensure that all of our fantastic events are well publicized and advertised. In that regard, this committee links the Woodbridge board and the rest of the Harvard Community.
The Social Committee (SoCo) is one of the most important organs of the Woodbridge Society, as Woodbridge is by nature a social organization. The Social Committee organizes fun events such as parties, tea parties, karaoke nights, and black-tie events for the Society. SoCo plays an important role in helping Woodbridge members meet the diverse and fascinating people of the international community.
The Fundraising Committee is the newest addition to the Woodbridge family, having only existed for several years now. Noticing the need to expand our efforts beyond the Harvard bubble and into the various global locations of Woodbridge alums, the past board felt the need to create a committee solely dedicated to working towards improving our relations with these alums, while also increasing fundraising efforts.
