Political Science Major Hayden Goldberg Featured in College of Arts&Sciences Perspectives Newsletter

Submitted by Stephen Dunne on June 9, 2023 - 12:21pm

University of Washington senior Hayden Goldberg has the ear of the dean of the College of Arts & Sciences more than almost anyone on campus.

For the past three years, Goldberg has met with the dean every two weeks during the academic year as a member of the Arts & Sciences Advisory Council for Students (ASACS). The council, made up of students from across the College, weighs in on a wide range of issues related to the student experience.

“It’s been a great space for me to learn about the College and how it functions,” says Goldberg, currently chair of ASACS. “I’ve seen the constraints the College faces. The question is how to make improvements within those constraints. That’s what I’ve been trying to do over the past three years.”

Goldberg, who graduates this month from the College of Arts & Sciences, is a perfect fit for this advisory role given his broad interests and activities at the UW. An Interdisciplinary Honors student with a double major in political science and economics, he also has been active in a student group focused on neuroscience accessibility and outreach. He has studied abroad and participated in independent and faculty-led research outside his major. Through summer internships with Common Power and the Civil Rights Justice Center, he has explored voter rights and the legal world.
