Meet Ishaan, 2022 Homecoming Court Member

Ishaan Modi is a senior from Fishers, Indiana double majoring in history, philosophy, and sociology of science in Lyman Briggs College and social relations and policy in James Madison College, with a minor in Spanish. He currently dedicates his time to service in the Greater Lansing area by serving as a mentor for Honors College IMPACT, an equity-focused community-engagement program for first-year students. He has a close connection to the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD), having served as the Vice President of MSU Tower Guard. Modi is currently a professorial assistant and published co-author on the Shires Research Team where he has studied transgender HIV/STI screening, hormone therapy, mental health, and transphobia among ER physicians. He has served in multiple elected positions for the Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU) such as the General Assembly Representative for Lyman Briggs College and, currently, the Student Body Vice President of Governmental Affairs. While serving in these positions, he advocated for his constituents through drafting legislation and serving as the voice for MSU’s approximately 40,000 undergraduate student population at the local, state, and federal level. Modi plans to attend medical school after his undergraduate education, with the aspirations of increasing access to healthcare and reducing health inequities by being a family medicine physician.

“I’m so excited to represent MSU on the Homecoming Court, to be a voice for marginalized students and provide representation to students who feel like they would not belong at MSU. I hope my leadership fosters belonging.”
