Biography: My name is Dawson Mann, I am a third-year Business Administration major. I was born and raised here in Fairbanks. I love and care about this community.  I am a local graduate of Austin E. Lathrop high school where I proudly served in student body government and worked to help give voice to students at numerous conferences and committees. I am a strong advocate for better efficiency in both ASUAF and the various student life organizations. Through a combination of reform and collaboration, I work to inspire more well-planned, successful events and programs for the betterment of the student body. I also strive to increase inclusivity within ASUAF through the creation of a more welcoming environment and further outreach to marginalized students
