Biography and Candidate Statement

Mitch Huber currently serves as the Graduate Professional Assistant for the Office of University Life – Arlington. He relocated to the area to pursue a Master’s of Public Administration at the Schar School within George Mason University. Prior to graduate school, Mitch was a Transportation Planner at the Michigan Department of Transportation where he led several projects and initiatives. One is the transition to a virtual workplace amid the pandemic. During his undergraduate degree, Mitch served as a hall president and representative of the Residence Hall Association at Michigan State University. While in his position, he initiated and completed a hall government consolidation and organized several large student events. While at Michigan State, Mitch earned his B.S. in Urban and Regional Planning with honors. Outside the office and the classroom, Mitch served in the nonprofit Children of the American Revolution where he held several leadership positions such as Michigan State President and Great Lakes Regional Vice President. While President, he raised over $30,000 to be donated to the construction of the Michigan WWII memorial in Royal Oak, MI.

Will you be able to meet the time commitments and expectations of the position? Describe your probable availability for the 2022-2023 academic year, as well as other on-going time commitments (e.g., classes, work, organizational involvement).

If elected President, my duties to GAPSA will be a high priority alongside my commitments to my academics and University Life. While my classes and residence are both in Arlington, I have access to multiple modes of transportation and I don’t foresee it being a major obstacle for me. I anticipate taking 6 credits and holding an assistantship in the fall and thus have more flexibility with my schedule than most. I plan on leveraging that availability either for a second job, internship, or the position of President of GAPSA.
