Each representative is responsible for supporting and representing approximately 20 student groups. Questions on budgets, policies, or anything related to UFB should be directed to your student group's assigned representative.

Julian De Georgia - UFB Chair or

Hi everyone - my name is Julian! I am a senior studying Applied Mathematics - Economics and am originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I joined UFB my freshman year and have been working ever since to improve our transparency and make our funding process easier for student groups to navigate! I really care about improving UFB, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any suggestions for things that we can be doing better. Outside of classes and UFB, I spend my time playing jazz piano, volunteering as an SAT tutor, and taking part in the Brown Consulting Club.
