Pronouns: She/her/hers

Hi, y’all! My name is Shae Rickel Urias, and I am the current executive director of initiatives for USG. I am a senior at IUPUI majoring in business management and international studies. I am passionate about serving my community, uplifting underrepresented voices, and creating change.

I have had the pleasure of being very involved during my time at IUPUI. I have served as the vice president and USG senator of the Latino Student Association. During my time in LSA, I led committees organizing the Latinx Cultural Appreciation Night. I have also served on the Initiatives Committee for two years.

During my time as the DOI, I will work on initiatives that focus on campus security, the It’s On Us campaign, and continue USG’s mission to create a more sustainable campus. Above all, I will work alongside the Senate to prioritize the needs of students and turn their initiatives into a reality.

Applications to be a part of the Initiatives Committee will open at the beginning of the fall 2021 semester, and I am actively seeking students who want to get involved and create change. Keep an eye out and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns!
