IUSA candidates: Voice IUSA presidential candidate Alex Wisniewski



Emily Abshire


All three presidential candidates in this year's upcoming IU Student Association election said they doubted most students on campus know what IUSA is.  

IUSA, the University's representative student government, is set up like the United States government with three branches — executive, student body congress and supreme court. 

Each year, new representatives are voted in by students. This year's voting for the executive ticket is March 27 and 28. The executive ticket is made up of a president, vice president of congress, vice president of administration and treasurer. 

Alex Wisniewski is a junior running for president on the Voice IUSA ticket, one of three campaigns for IUSA 2018-19.

Wisniewski said the Voice ticket is distinct because it has been reaching out to student organizations to hear concerns and ideas before writing any policy. He said he hopes this creates a direct line of communication between stakeholders and the IU administration, with IUSA as a liaison. 

Watch the IDS interview with Wisnewski to learn more about him, the ticket's policies and why he wants your vote.
