Beaver business major elected as Faculty Senate student representative

MONACA, Pa. — Fynn Mott has been selected to represent her peers on Faculty Senate.

The Faculty Senate is the legislative body that represents University faculty and holds primary authority over all of the educational matters that impact students, including curriculum, student policies, admissions and graduation requirements.

In other words, it’s kind of a big deal.

Fortunately, the senate allows undergraduate students to be members and have a voice in creating policies and making decisions. And Penn State Beaver students just helped to elect one of their own to the post — sophomore business major Fynn Mott.

She was notified of her win on Tuesday.

“I am so excited to start advocating for the students of Penn State Beaver, as well as the University as a whole,” said Mott.

Mott is an honors student, a THON participant, a business club member, a student advocate for the Campus Green Team, and a student worker in the Office of Academic Affairs.

She was the only one of five University College candidates running from the Beaver campus.

Mott’s election to the Faculty Senate requires her to travel to University Park six times per year, to sit on committees with faculty members and administrators, and to help to make decisions about all aspects of the Penn State education.
