Edward Tranter is majoring in Political Science with a double minor in Economics and Philosophy at Swarthmore College. (Go Garnet!) He became involved with the International Student program at Swarthmore as a freshman and then became president of the ambassadors for the program in his sophomore year. He is also currently a Resident Advisor on campus and is looking forward to Spring 2020 –when Swarthmore College is due to reopen fully– as he will continue to be an RA but for twice as many students (he hopes). Working with the college's Centre for Innovation and Leadership will provide a unique experience for Edward as he will be able to be immersed in an innovative atmosphere with peers that will provide support and collaboration. Edward is excited to be a part of the creation and development of this new community.
Edward is the first in his family to attend university.
Edward is an undergraduate Fulbright scholar with the US-UK Fulbright Commission.
