Jack Reeves is a rising junior at the George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs where he studies international affairs with a concentration in security policy. This fall Jack will begin research that applies a gender-peace-security lens to the genocide of the Uyghur population in Xinjiang as a Dean’s Scholar in the 2021-2023 cohort of the Elliott School’s flagship undergraduate research program. He will also study computer programming as a public interest technology scholarship recipient in order to develop technical competence strengthening his interest in cybersecurity and governance. Outside the classroom, Jack serves as president of the GW Interfaith Council where he collaborates with peers across the university and in Washington, DC, to build community, produce public programs, and promote appreciative knowledge of diverse worldviews. Born and raised in the Kansas City area, Jack has previous multicultural experience at the Kansas City Interfaith Youth Alliance and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Jack looks forward to supporting the IRC’s important work this summer as a fund development intern.
