SU senior chosen to represent students at state level


SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury University student and Eastern Shore native has been chosen to represent college students at the state level.

On Friday, SU Senior Nate Sansom was sworn in as the University System of Maryland Board of Regents’ 2020-21 student member. He is one of 21 members who will represent more than 170-thousand* students enrolled at USM campuses. This means he will be involved in making decisions that address student concerns including the current challenges with COVID-19.

“Whether it’s in person with appropriate physical distance or remote learning that’s asynchronous, whatever the format may be I’m just optimistic that we will uphold the very high standard that we have for higher education across our state,” says Sansom.

Sansom is a political science and conflict analysis and dispute resolution major. He tells 47 ABC he is humbled by this opportunity and is excited to get to work, helping college students across the state.
