Chief of Staff

The Chiefs of Staff work closely with the Student Body President and the Executive Vice-President to assist in fulfilling the E-Board’s vision for the current term of Student Government. As the E-Board and Cabinet execute their initiatives and events there will often be the need to complete unforeseen tasks as logistical complexities arise. The Chiefs of Staff are not charged with a specific set of duties in the way that Cabinet Directors are; rather, they are given enough independence to work on a diverse array of impromptu tasks on behalf of the E-Board. In this way, they are ideally suited to serve as versatile aides to the Student Body President.

Tom batson, cheif of staff to the President

Hello everyone! My name is Tom Batson and I am honored to be this year’s Chief of Staff to the Student Body President for the 2018-2019 BU Student Government. This year I’m a rising junior pursuing a double degree in CFA for Piano Performance and CAS for English. In addition to my studies, I work as a Marsh Chapel Associate and co-lead MOVE: The Marsh Organization for Volunteer Engagement. I’m a California native who loves to read, camp, play golf, and perhaps most importantly, eat. I am thrilled to work with all of you this year to make BU a more inclusive, vibrant, and positive place to learn and live together.
