Adam Brown VP External

Adam Brown is in his second year as Vice President External of the University of Alberta Students’ Union. He is currently a 5th year student working to complete a Bilingual Bachelors of Commerce between Campus Saint-Jean and the Faculty of Business, majoring in Business Economics and Law. Adam represents undergraduate students to all levels of government and works with the Council of Alberta University Students (CAUS) and the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA), in various advocacy efforts. In the 2018-2019 year, he was also the Chair of CASA and presented the organization's priorities to House of Commons committees and the Prime Minister of Canada. His priorities this year include, but are not limited to, advocating for equitable changes to Alberta's Student Financial Aid system, ensuring mental health funding is consistent, and communicating the benefits of work-integrated learning to the provincial and federal governments.

A born and raised Calgarian, Adam has been passionate about student leadership, politics, and change-making since a very young age. He has occupied various student governance positions at Campus Saint-Jean, most recently as President of the Association des Universitaires de la Faculté Saint-Jean (AUFSJ) in 2017-2018. Since moving to Edmonton, he has also become immersed in Alberta’s francophone community and has held a number of leadership roles in provincial and national francophone youth parliaments. Adam’s political experience has helped to grow his advocacy skills and develop relationships with various government stakeholders. Staying true to his Calgary roots, he makes sure to never miss attending the Calgary Stampede and seeing the rodeo. In his free time, Adam enjoys spending time with friends, listening to and playing music, line dancing and two-stepping, watching hockey as a life-long Oilers fan, and following political events locally and globally.
