Tabitha Escalante
Vice President
she/her/hers
2023

My name is Tabitha and I am a junior from Ohio in Eliot House studying sociology and government. I am deeply energized and humbled to serve as the IOP's vice president this year! Coming off an incredible year co-leading the Policy Program, I am beyond excited to work toward an IOP that is not only at the forefront of national youth-led political participation, but also exists as an institute grounded in both education and action. Beyond this, I cannot wait to welcome students from a broad array of backgrounds and aspirations at and beyond the College as we seek to meaningfully expand the IOP's definition of public service. Beyond the IOP, I serve as the Co-Chair of Concilio Latino, work as a research and teaching fellow in the Government Department focusing on mass incarceration, manage peer education efforts at the Harvard Foundation for Race and Intercultural Relations, and serve as a judicial advocacy associate for a national non-profit working to end gun violence. In my free time, I can typically be found watching Netflix, curating Spotify playlists, running, or standing in line at Felipe's!
