Michael Griffiths (he/they) is your UASU Vice President Student Life for the 2023/24 academic year. He is entering his fifth year of an honours political science degree, with a minor in economics and a leadership certificate from the Peter Lougheed Leadership College. Michael grew up in the small Alberta town of Coronation before moving to Edmonton in September of 2019 to pursue his degree. He has been involved on campus throughout his degree, living in residence for four years and serving as President of the Lister Hall Students' Association during 2022/23.

This year, Michael hopes to continue the efforts of past executives in improving safety, inclusivity, affordability, and sustainability at the University of Alberta. They will be working on initiatives like the implementation of the new sexual and gender based violence policy and improvements to mental health support on campus with the recently announced funding. He will also be working on improvements to our residences and continuing to re-engage our campus and student group communities as we emerge from the pandemic.

Michael is always looking to expand their advocacy efforts and student consultation. If you are ever in need of support or have concerns to raise, please reach out to Michael by email: michael.griffiths@uasu.ca.
