Students' Council (7 seats available)

Jashan Mahal

Hello everyone! I am Jashan Mahal, and I am running to be the next Arts Councilor in the SU. I am a 4th year Psychology Honors student from India. I have served as an Arts Councilor in the International Students Association (ISA) for the last one year. I also had the pleasure to be elected as the next Vice President External of ISA.

As an arts student, one of the most concerning ones is limited opportunities available for gaining appropriate Work Experience. Arts degrees can be very useful and marketable when they are combined with the right skills and experience. I want us all to have that holistic university experience, so that we can graduate confidently with offers on our hands. On the same note, students in the Faculty of Arts pay more Work Experience Fees than most other faculties. This fee is extremely disproportionate to what we earn in our internships. I want to advocate for better quality and more accessible work experience opportunities going forward. I promise to work with other Arts councilors and together we will make sure that the Student Council commits to work on these longstanding challenges.

This past year as the ISA Arts Councilor has been a challenging yet a great learning experience. This year, I hope to apply all my learning and hard work to represent each student in the Faculty of Arts. Please vote for me on March 23-24 to be your next UASU Arts Councilor.

Hi Everyone, my name is Leo Huang. I’m a first year Political Science Student and I’m running to be your next Students’ Council and General Faculties Council Arts Representative. I’m running because I see many opportunities for improvement on our campus and Student Council. These are my three priorities: transparency, hybrid classes, and better chairs in Tory classrooms. First, transparency is important for any democratic democratic institution; it’s needed in order for the student council to have the trust of the student body. Our student council has room for improvement in the transparency department, made apparent during the previous BOG Undergraduate Representative Replenishment Election. Second, we need classes to be a hybrid setting. Every class should have in person lectures that are recorded and posted to eClass. This way, if you’re sick or unable to get to class, you can still have equal access to lecture material that you’ve paid for. Third, the chairs at Tory are far too uncomfortable for anyone to sit on and focus well. As well, the desks are too small to fit a laptop. I will advocate for the replacement of the current chairs in the classrooms of Henry Marshall Tory Building. If you have any questions please email me at huangforcouncil@gmail.com and follow my campaign on Instagram @huang_forcouncil. Note, my platform will be in the link of the Instagram bio. Thanks!

Hello Arts Students! My name is Sarah Opeña-Sakar and I am running to represent YOU on both Students’ Council and GFC because I am passionate about ensuring that everyone’s thoughts and ideas are heard. I have connected with hundreds of students over the course of this past year in my leadership role as VP Media & Marketing for UABSA where I listened to the shared concerns of many. This is why I believe that collaboration along with accountability go such a long way. My platform is all about: outreach, accountability, and transparency. I plan to consistently touch base with both individual students and student groups/networks associated with the Faculty of Arts in order to keep track of concerns. I will also commit to finding what is already in place that benefits Arts students and advocate to continue such implements. We can all agree that the past two years have not been easy for anyone and I believe that the newly elected executive team has brought tangible goals to the table which will improve the lives of so many students' regardless of faculty. Therefore, my number one priority will be monitoring the progress of how each executive portfolio fulfills their platform points and ensuring that their plans positively affect all students in the Faculty of Arts. I hope to earn your vote on March 23rd & March 24th as I would be honoured to use my experience to represent ALL students in the Faculty of Arts.
