YEAR OF STUDY: 5th
PROGRAM OF STUDY: Environmental and Sustainability Studies (ESST)
WHAT I DO:
As President, my role is to listen to students and work with other student leaders within the ASU and across Nova Scotia and Canada and Acadia University staff, faculty, and administration to respond to the ideas, aspirations, and concerns of students. The President has the responsibility of promoting student safety, wellness, and engagement within the Acadia University community. As President I sit on the University Senate, the academic governing body of the university, the University Board of Governors, the non-academic governing body of the university, and the Town of Wolfville Town and Gown Committee. Also, along with the Vice President Academic and External, the President represents Acadia students at our external advocacy organizations including Students Nova Scotia (SNS) and the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) to advocate for the affordability and accessibility of post-secondary education within Nova Scotia and across Canada.
MY GOALS FOR THE YEAR:
FUN FACT ABOUT ME: I have been to 10/13 Canadian Provinces and Territories and I love to canoe and ski!
Capitalize on the small size of Acadia, get to know the people around you – your classmates, professors, campus leaders, and neighbors – and work with one another to support a better Acadia community – it will help you in the long run!
