The University of Minnesota Undergraduate Student Government’s (USG) president Shashank Murali resigned from his position on March 22, citing personal and mental health reasons. 

In his resignation letter, Murali said he had been discussing his resignation with USG’s presidential team for over a month and USG directors were notified weeks ago of the decision. 

“I believe that now is the best time for me to resign and focus on myself and my well-being,” Murali said in his resignation letter. 

Vice President Sara Davis will assume Murali’s position until USG’s newly elected president and vice president Rahma Ali and Clara Jünemann begin their term in July.

USG formally announced Murali’s resignation to their staff at its most recent Forum meeting on Tuesday, according to USG Communications Director Mina Zhang.

“We strongly believe in our organization’s ability to smoothly continue serving students with this recent change,” USG said in an email statement to The Minnesota Daily. “Currently, we are unsure of a re-appointment of Vice President given time left in the semester and because we would like to continue prioritizing our time and focus towards our student advocacy efforts.”
