Nate is currently a senior majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on mental health. Passionate about social justice and equity, Nate serves as the executive director of Volunteer Emory, co-director of an arts collective focused on mental health called Emory Dark Arts, and is working with fellow IDEAS Fellow Maggie Mang to help spearhead a mental health advisory and advocacy project to work with administrators towards comprehensive mental health reform at Emory. The first step has been the creation of Emory's Mental Health Student Advisory Board meant to increase transparency, promote collaborative communication between administrative systems of support and students, and elevate the role of students' voices in the process of assessing and formulating mental health policy at Emory.
