Leadership Team

Sarah deVeer ‘17 is a staff member at the Center for Civic Engagement, overseeing local engagement and volunteer programs for undergrads at Bard College. The Dissonance is one of her favorite student staffs to run, and she is particularly excited about film and podcast projects produced through the initiative as she obtained her Bachelors in Film and Electronic Arts. Sarah enjoys the opportunity to intersect media with local and national politics, and is always excited to see the innovative projects the student staff produces. 

André Santana is the Postbaccalaureate Fellow for Inclusive Excellence at Bard College. He is a graduate of Bard College at Simon’s Rock and received his BA in psychology and biosocial studies. At Bard Annandale he helps to oversee projects like Dissonance, SCALE, and the Global Fellows Program.
