Greetings everyone! For those of you who may not know me, my name is Frederick Johnson, and I am a 3rd year Ph.D. student, in the CISAT program, with an emphasis on IT Innovation and Design. Much of my experience is related to IT Leadership within the Biotech and Life Sciences industries, responsible for building, developing, and directing high-performance global teams.
However, over the next year, I look forward to passionately representing our graduate student community. I pledge to apply my industry expertise of “Integrating people, processes, and technology through passion, courage, and integrity” within the greater CGU community I attend.
More importantly, in this golden age of innovation, I would also support the advancement of an on-campus maker-space dedicated to (a) Student-driven start-up opportunities, and (b) CGU sponsored idea to market programs.
And within the broader context of serving students, I would direct much of my attention on (1) Serving as an advocate in transforming the association between the Claremont colleges into a collaborative relationship, while honoring our belief of many lamps, one light, (2) Building stronger bonds between industry, and students that fosters entrepreneurial, research and employment opportunities. And finally, (3) Working with our students in seeking ways to strengthen the CGU brand altogether.
My objective is simple, “Help develop a system where each student has the opportunity to enjoy their CGU experience through Exposure, Practice, and applicable Insight.”
