Jacob Binnall, School of Public Policy Student, Sworn in as UMass Trustee

Jacob Binnall, a graduate student at the School of Public Policy, has been sworn in by Gov. Charlie Baker to serve on the UMass Board of Trustees, as student trustee for the Amherst campus. The UMass system is governed by a 22-member board that represents various interests of the public at large on a non-partisan basis. Seventeen members of the board are appointed by the governor and the five UMass students are elected by the student body on each of the five campuses. Binnall is in SPP’s 4+1 Master of Public Policy program. A first-generation college student, he received his bachelor’s in political science and legal studies in May.
