Chris Beasley VP External

Chris Beasley (he/they) is your UASU Vice President External this year!

Chris has spent the last six years as a political science student on campus, getting heavily involved with the Organization for Arts Students and Interdisciplinary Studies (OASIS), the Debate Society, as well as UASU Students’ Council.

This year, they will be working to represent you to the municipal, provincial, and federal government to ensure that students get the best deals possible. He will also be chairing our provincial advocacy coalition, the Council of Alberta University Students (CAUS). Students need more mental health funding, more support for sexual and gender based violence response services, and more affordability in their degrees. These are just a few of the conversations Chris will be having with elected officials and stakeholders on your behalf. If you ever want to chat about politics or what the UASU advocates on, you can always send an email to chris.beasley@uasu.ca, to set up some time to meet and chat.

Outside of governance you can find them playing Dungeons & Dragons, hanging out with the friends he made in university, and petting their cat.
