Our Team

Conor McGeehan, President

Conor is a junior studying technological entrepreneurship through the McCormick Integrated Engineering Studies program. In addition to DISC, he is a member of Design for America and the Evanston Boxing Club, and serves as an executive board member of Delta Tau Delta.

Last year, I felt lost in the field of computer science because I couldn't see the positive impacts of what I would be doing after college. I hope to foster an environment in DISC where other students can realize the possible social implications of technology work, and to offer our members a chance to work on such projects while they are still completing their studies.

I resonate with the saying ‘You get out what you put in’, and a passion of mine has always been helping others, since that allows for communal growth and overall betterment. From the I learned about the DISC movement I was all in, this was the branch between personal goals and Computer Science at Northwestern that I had been searching for.
