Renson Alva VP Student Life

Renson Alva (he/they) is your UASU Vice President Student Life for the 2024/25 academic year. He is entering his fifth year of a Biological Sciences degree, with a minor in Sociology. Renson grew up on the tiny island Kingdom of Bahrain before moving to Edmonton in 2020 to pursue his degree. He has been involved on campus throughout his degree in various volunteer roles, living and working as a student-staff in residence for three years.

As the UASU renews its strategic plan, Renson hopes to continue the advocacy efforts of past executives to ensure you get the most out of your university experience. They will be working with their counterparts in the university administration to further student wellness, equity, diversity, inclusivity and accessibility on-campus. He will also be working on improvements at our residences and engage our communities in Augustana and Campus Saint Jean.

Renson is always looking to expand their advocacy efforts and student consultation. If you are ever in need of support, have concerns to raise or would simply like to chat about anything student life, please reach out to Renson by email; vp.studentlife@uasu.ca, book a meeting on their calendar or swing by SUB 2-900 :)

Fun Fact: Renson’s name is derived from a fusion of his dad’s name (Nelson) and mom’s name (Renita).
