FORT WAYNE, Ind.— The 2016–17 officers for the Indiana–Purdue Student Government Association (IPSGA) begin their terms in office today.

The new executive officers are:

  • Student Body President – Andrew Kreager (Fort Wayne)
  • Vice President of Legislation – Alexander Sanderson (Fort Wayne)
  • Vice President of Finance – James Hoppes (Indianapolis)
  • Vice President of Programming – Alexis Tucker (Fort Wayne)

"IPFW has been fortunate to have strong leadership in IPSGA and across our campus," said George McClellan, vice chancellor for student affairs. "The incoming executive officers follow in that tradition. I look forward to seeing their contribution to the future strength of IPFW."

IPSGA plays several roles on campus, all of which focus on student support and welfare. Among other things, they improve the student body's academic, cultural, mental, physical, and social welfare, safeguard their academic and individual freedoms, and formulate policies governing the activities and welfare of the members of the IPFW student body.

"I was so excited to be elected VP of Programming," said newcomer Alexis Tucker. "My goal is to gain more members in the Student Activities Board and inform students what events are happening on campus, as well as increase the publicity of the events from the SAB."

With an operating budget of roughly half a million dollars, IPSGA is able to put on events such as the Old Dominion/Chris Lane concert held on April 19, which had over 750 attendees.

Voting for the officer positions took place during Spring Fling week, April 18–22.
