Rohan Tapiawala

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Business Administration and Public Policy



Rohan is a sophomore at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill studying business administration and public policy. With dreams of going to law school and engaging in sustainable/socially responsible corporate law, his most important values include collaboration, equity, and leadership. A lifelong servant leader, he hopes to eventually work in corporate law and use his position to spotlight LGBTQ and racial discrimination in business, queer empowerment, and mentorship and uplift the barriers that queer people must face both in and out of the workplace.

On campus, he is involved with the undergraduate student government, volunteers with the Community Empowerment Fund, and works as a DEI fellow. Community outreach and campus-wide support for marginalized populations in both spaces is an arena of policy he is passionate about, working to correct and solve inequities through academia and research, as well as direct service, volunteering, and advocacy. He has also worked as an intern at both NCBC and NC FIELD, and as a team leader at Chick-Fil-A. In his free time, he enjoys writing, running, and hanging out with friends.
