Vice President of Peer Advocacy

Thomas Musgrave ‘25

Hello! My name is Thomas Musgrave, and I am honored to serve as Judicial Council Vice President of Peer Advocacy. I am a current junior originally from Bourbonnais, Illinois, but now live in the Cinderblock Palace, Stanford Hall.

I study political science with minors in data science, peace studies, and social entrepreneurship, and hope to pursue a career in law and public policy. Aside from Judicial Council, I also serve on the executive board of the Student Policy Network, give campus tours with undergraduate admissions, and play violin in the Symphony Orchestra on campus. Last summer, I also had the opportunity to intern at the White House in the Office of Presidential Correspondence!

As Judicial Council Vice President of Peer Advocacy for the 2023-24 term, my priorities are as follows:

Raise Awareness of Student Resources: Educate students on resources to assist them during Office of Community Standards proceedings, both within Peer Advocacy and otherwise, through targeted marketing and outreach initiatives.

Emphasize Peer Advocacy through Residential Life: Inform dorm leaders of Peer Advocacy as a resource to share with their residents. Create presentations for advocates to give to their dorm communities so that students feel comfortable asking for help.

Effectively Assist Students in Office of Community Standards Proceedings: Train new advocates to compassionately support peers who face potential disciplinary proceedings through OCS.
