Levi Flaman

alt text

Hello! My name is Levi Flaman and I’m running to be one of your Alberta School of Business elected student representatives for both the University of Alberta General Faculties Council and Students’ Union Students’ Council for the 2021-2022 academic year. If elected, some of the initiatives I would undertake would be as follows: First, would request a one-time compliance audit be performed in the next year once our audit provider has been chosen for the audited financial statements. In the past few years, there have been instances where the organization has failed to follow its own rules and steps need to be taken to understand why this is happening and what can be done to prevent it. In addition, would request that a performance audit be performed in the year prior to the renewal of the strategic plan so that the results of the audit may be used in drafting the principles of the renewed plan. Second, would amend an existing policy or draft a new policy surrounding online instruction. The COVID pandemic transitioned us to online learning which has presented challenges for students, few of which seem to have been addressed in a way conducive to the struggles of learning remotely. Other institutions have made strides towards compassionate learning policies while we seem to be lagging to the detriment of our students. Reach out to learn more and on March 17 th and 18 th , choose Levi Flaman as your 2021-22 Business representative for General Faculties Council and Students’ Council.

Hey! My name is Ghalia and I am a business student at the University of Alberta. I am passionate about student voice and want to serve as your SU and GFC Councilor. I realized my passion for leadership at the age of 13 when I set out to become a tutor. No company would hire me so I launched my own business, Toon Tutors, with a goal of providing meaningful employment opportunities for young people and affordable educational tools for families. I am now building my second company TalkMaze to connect students all around the world with high quality public speaking and debate training. Recently, I represented Canada as the country’s youngest delegate for the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit, championing youth entrepreneurship across the world. I want to bring my unique experiences to student advocacy at the U of A with a goal of maximizing opportunities for students in an equitable manner. In my first year, I served as a member of the Dean of Students Advisory Committee. I was able to advocate for students at this level. I then served as Co-Chair of Outrun the Stigma on campus, advocating for mental health across Edmonton. In these roles, I’ve had a chance to connect with numerous students and understand the issues students are facing. I would love to chat with you to learn what I can do to provide value for you. Please feel free to email me at aamer@ualberta.ca or connect with me on LinkedIn at @aamerghalia.

Hello! My name is Samantha and I am currently in my third year of a Business degree with a Human Resources major. In line with my major and past experience, I want to make people’s lives better. This is shown through my work on and off campus which is explored further in my platform, through clubs like Enactus and self-started non-profits like Sunshine Connected.

I think tangible outcomes are really important and I enjoy breaking big problems down into smaller pieces to see how we can address them effectively. I believe in the value of an engaged university community where students feel welcome and heard.

My platform will advocate for interdisciplinary engagement, communication and partnership. A focus of mine will be how business students can get the best experience out of their education even when we are in an online learning environment. Entrepreneurship and innovation as well as work experience are topics that I have experience in and will advocate for.

The Business faculty is a remarkable place to study on campus and I have watched students from our faculty push boundaries time and time again. I hope you will trust me with the privilege of representing you on the Students' Council. Please view my platform for more information.
