The Executive Committee (EC) is the workhorse of the SIPS Fund. From project evaluation to managing the endowment fund to hosting events, the EC serves as the public face of SIPS. The Executive Committee meets every week and runs through various agenda items including potential partnerships, upcoming Board meetings, and applicants in the project pipeline.
Made up entirely of students, our team consists of an Executive Director, Managing Director, Operations Director, Project Managers and a Finance and Marketing Team. Together, the EC ensures that SIPS is providing the resources necessary for students to engage in socially innovative projects or public service opportunities, whether here in the U.S. or abroad.
