Student Government: The Activist interviews Bryce Mortera and Trevin Ecker about The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College Tribunal


In high schools, it is very common to have student government positions (president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer) – but what about colleges? In turns out, despite it being quite unknown, the University of Cincinnati has a student government at main campus, and is working on branching out to the Blue Ash campus as well

The most important thing about a school is the students. Each and every person who attends the institution is to be treated fairly and helped as much as possible, to achieve their goal of graduating.

The current secretary of the University of Cincinnati Tribunal, Bryce Mortera, as well as a very active member of the group, Trevin Ecker, both have very important roles in the University of Cincinnati community. The following is a list of information on the organization, based on an interview that was conducted with the two of them on Wednesday, February 6, 2019.

  • The University of Cincinnati Tribunal (UCT) has been around for as long as UC has been a college. It was started to help assist students in various activities such a busing, weather assistance by passing out umbrellas, etc.
  • For a while UCT had a Blue Ash campus group, but it died out. It is coming back.
  • UCT gains their funding from the office of student life.
  • When asked about his future goals for the UCT, Mortera said that he would most like to see the leadership body grow, for more people to vote/run, and to maximize leadership opportunities within the school community.
  • When asked about his involvement with the UCT, Ecker mentioned that he has been attending meetings at the Blue Ash campus, working on the UCT Constitution, by-laws, and more. He is even wanting to eventually run for a position in leadership within the UCT.

For those of you who would like to join this amazing organization and get involved with the UCT at the UC Blue Ash campus, you’re in luck.

Once the UCBA group has been established and funded, they will be a part of many organization fairs and have multiple posts on bulletin boards around campus. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in a group that values making this campus a better place for everyone.

Interested UCBA students are invited to reach out to Chris Dziekan, Program Manager for Orientation and Professional Development, in Muntz Hall 123 and via email at
