I spent many years in student leadership at the University of Alberta! My experience culminated as President as the University of Alberta Students Union (UASU) in the 2018 - 2019 academic year!
The UASU is an organization that represents the interests of its 35,000 members, lobbies as a non-partisan organization, manages a budget of 14 million, provides 350 jobs on campus, and oversees the operations of several businesses and dozens of services. The President is the head of the organization, responsible for managing the General Manager, executive team, and reputation of the institution.
In my time as President, several amazing accomplishments where achieved, including; a five-year strategic plan, a balanced budget, provincial legislation (Alberta’s Bill 19), Get Out The Vote (GOTV) campaigns for provincial and federal elections, restructuring of marketing and research management, and the publication of the first recommendations for organization wide reconciliation efforts.
