Meet the President
My name is Faith Kidd and I am the current Student Body President. I am from an hour south of Traverse City, Michigan. I am in my senior year in the Political Science program, and I have a minor in International Business. My interest areas are Women in Politics, the link between Public Health Crises and Political Science, and Legislation. Before coming to GVSU, I earned my Associate's of Arts with High Honors through an early college program.
Before I came to Grand Valley, I spent two years at West Shore Community College, and during my time there, my love for Student Government and Education blossomed. During my time in Community College, I served as the Executive Vice President of the Student Senate, was the student representative on the Presidential Leadership Team, and worked as the Teaching Assistant for the Biology department. Writing legislation, tutoring students, and sitting on academic committees are all passions of mine, and I wanted to continue my work in Student Government and Education at GVSU.
Since I joined the Grand Valley Student Body in 2020, I have spent a year on the Educational Affairs Committee, a year as the Vice President of the Educational Affairs Committee, and now, I am serving as the Student Body President. Through my work, I have advocated for Open Access initiatives, co-written and edited multiple pieces of legislation, and have pushed for increased communication and collaboration within the University.
Outside of Student Senate, I am involved with Peter C. Cook Leadership Academy and the Frederik Meijer Honors College. In my free time, I love traveling, Broadway, baking, and going to concerts.
I look forward to representing all of you and urge you to connect with me, share your concerns or ideas for Grand Valley, and help me to bridge the gap between the student body and student government!
