Michelle Tuma loves to apply what she’s learning in the classroom. At the University of Illinois Springfield, she’s been given that opportunity. The political science and legal studies major is an intern with the Illinois Innocence Project where she’s working to help overturn the convictions of people she believes were wrongly convicted. She’s also the head delegate of the UIS Model Illinois Government Organization, vice president of the College Democrats and an intramural sports supervisor at TRAC.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
