Day 25: Meeting with the Office of University Relations and my first Gateway interview (in office) - June 6, 2013Josh Le - Thu Jun 06, 2013
Top: The Exec (minus Adam because he's on vacation) met with Dr. Debra Pozega Osbourn (VP University Relations), Deb Hammacher (Associate VP University Relations), and Alexis Pepin (Director, Government & Corporate Relations) to chat about grassroots advocacy, a charity run, and graduate attributes. The mission of University Relations is to formulate strategies and undertake initiatives that will help to position the University of Alberta as an institution that is admired, respected, and trusted by our stakeholders. These stakeholders include students and their parents, faculty, donors and alumni, all orders of government, institutional partners, and the communities we serve (Source: http://www.ur.ualberta.ca/)
Bottom: I got my first interview in office by Andrea Ross from the Gateway about the SUB Renovations. I'll update the link when it's up. I'm showing off the mini model made by DIALOG many months ago. It's a bit dated, but it still packs a visual punch.
Other notables: - The Grant Allocation Committee met to learn about the Access Fund and Students' Union Awards by the manager and assistant managers from the Student Financial Aid Information Centre. Learn more about SFAIC here: http://www.su.ualberta.ca/services/sfaic/.
