Shaina Humphrey ‘19

Hometown: Waukegan, IL
Majors: Political Science & Legal Studies
Future Plans: Become a lawyer

Shaina Humphrey never planned to run for elected office, until a mentor suggested she should seek the role of student representative to the University of Illinois Board of Trustees. Humphrey was elected to that office by her fellow students in April 2018. As student-trustee, she regularly travels to UIS’ sister universities in Urbana-Champaign and Chicago for meetings, holds office hours where she listens to UIS students’ concerns and attends functions representing the Springfield campus. Humphrey is active on campus as the president of the Black Student Union and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and is co-president of the Student Advocacy Coalition. She works for the UIS Office of Electronic Media where she helps with video productions and for UIS Campus Recreation as an intramural official and facility lead. Following graduation from UIS, she plans to attend law school and become a lawyer.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
