Hobbies: Backpacking, kayaking, playing guitar, and snowboarding
Carson is in his junior year at the College of Environmental Science and Forestry, currently majoring in Environmental Studies with a Policy Planning and Law focus and dual minors in Writing and Economics.
Carson grew up in Scotia, New York, where he was actively involved in his community. Carson frequently worked on community service projects, participated in extracurricular clubs and organizations, and served as a counselor at a local summer camp- which he still does. Naturally, Carson's involvement in student government started early in his college career. At the end of his freshman year, Carson was elected to serve as Vice President of the SUNY ESF Undergraduate Student Association for the 2018-19 academic year.
As Vice President, Carson promoted initiatives for sustainability; diversity, equity and inclusion; and student engagement. Carson worked with then-President James Quinn and other executives to build organizational capacity- most notably leading the charge to make Robert's Rules accessible and understandable by all Student Association members.
In the spring of 2019, Carson joined the Student Assembly Executive Committee as Special Advisor to the Vice President, under the leadership of then-Vice President Austin Ostro. In this role, he worked alongside Austin and the rest of the Vice President's team to plan the 2019 Spring Conference and assisted with the planning and execution of system-wide Student Assembly events including Higher Education Action Day and Week of SUNY SA.
This year, Carson is excited to work with other executives to expand the strength and impact of the Student Assembly's advocacy by strengthening external partnerships, directing development initiatives, and creating strong financial record-keeping practices to enhance transparency and accessibility.
