A USF administrator called Spencer McCloskey an unselfishly reliable servant leader, lauding McCloskey for his work as a Student Government leader. Another praised the business analytics and information systems major for his negotiation skills as well as his critical thinking skills, his work ethic and his overall dedication to the university. One even rated McCloskey among the top students she has worked with – ever. That’s high praise.
Much of McCloskey’s service began with Student Government. He has served as a Tampa Campus Governor and he chaired the Campus Allocation Funding Committee, which allocates almost $18 million to student organizations campuswide. He was part of a team that developed a Diversity Council for SG as well as a team that worked to improve transparency and communications inside and outside of SG. But his service doesn’t stop there. McCloskey is a member of the USF Alumni Association’s Order of the Golden Brahman and serves as USF Ambassador. In 2019, he served as an Orientation Team Leader.
McCloskey is preparing to serve his country, too, as he is part of USF’s Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps. He is preparing for a career in the Air Force. Aside from his ROTC work, McCloskey taken advantage of business programs that will help advance his USAF career. The business analytics and information systems major is pursuing a minor in cybersecurity and has earned a Tableau Citizen Data Scientist certificate as well as an edX Certificate for SQL for Data Science.
