Candidates for Vice President (External)
My name is Chris Beasley, I am a student in Political Science, and I am running to be your next Vice President External. Students are at a critical time right now, we are about to have a provincial election which means that soon we will likely have a new Minister of Advanced Education and maybe even a new government. Students need someone with a demonstrated track record of advocacy and who has the experience necessary to sit across from a new Minister and fight for them.
I have that experience. My part-time job is working as the Communications Coordinator for the Council of Alberta University Students and I am currently organizing the Get Out The Vote Campaign for Students Unions across the province. I’ve also been a two-term councilor on Students’ Council and I served as the President of OASIS (the Arts faculty association). My time serving students has meant that I know what students need:
- Students need more affordable degrees,
- Students need better sexual violence supports,
- Students need to feel reliably safe on transit,
- The Province needs to treat International students better,
- Students need adequate mental health funding
I have tangible and achievable plans to achieve my platform that you can read about on my linktree.
You can also check out my Instagram, Facebook, my platform, or set up a meeting with me on my linktree.
On March 8th and 9th, vote Beasley for VP External
