UDC's Board of Trustees

Cheick Diakite

Student Representative to the Board Trustees - Board of Trustees

Cheick Oumar Diakite was born and raised in Bamako Mali (West Africa). He is the third child and the first male of a family of seven. He is a first generation college student. He currently is a senior student enrolled in the college of Arts and Sciences pursuing a dual major in Political Science and French at the University of The District of Columbia (UDC), and is scheduled to graduate with two Bachelors in May of 2012.

Mr. Diakite has remained a Dean's list student for the past three (3) years. He is a recipient of the Who's Who in American Universities & Colleges Award, and was inducted into the PI SIGMA NATIONAL POLITICAL SCIENCE HONOR SOCIETY CHI RHO CHAPTER 2010. Aside from his Campus-wide achievements and activities, he was recognized, in 2009, as the Best Dedicated Team Leader and Team Player, by the Mayor's Conservation Corps. Also, he tutors French to Students of the Lycee Rochambeau of Bethesda.

As a very involved student in his campus' life and activities, he gets his drive from his desire to making sure that each and every student of UDC has a fair advantage. During the 2010-2011 the academic year, he served as the elected Executive Secretary of the Undergraduate Student Government Association (USGA). Earlier this year, he was elected, for the 2011-2012 the academic year, by the student electorate as their Representative to the Board of Trustees (BOT). Trustee Diakite strives to ensure that the collective voices/perspectives and common interests of all the students are effectively represented and/or addressed by The BOT.
