Alia Karim | Ph. D Level 4 | Environmental Studies | email@example.com
As president and leader of the YUGSA, my responsibility is to serve the graduate community and act as a representative for every student. I chair the council meetings, work on YUGSA campaigns and sit on a wide number of committees at York. One of my commitments as President is to see a much stronger link between our allies (such as York’s Cross-Campus Alliance), improving student services/advocacy, and graduate student representation. Feel free to email me your ideas, comments and suggestions as I look forward to working with you.

Jacob McLean | Ph. D. Level 3 | Environmental Studies | email@example.com
As VP Campaigns I develop political and equity-based campaigns on issues affecting graduate students. In a time of accelerating cuts to graduate students’ jobs, funding, and services at York, it’s more important than ever to unite students and campus allies to push back. I hope to continue expanding the Fight for $15 and Fairness campaign and building upon our recent victories to make York a $15 and Fairness campus. I am also responsible for working with members of the Canadian Federation of Students and bringing attention to important issues other graduate students face to YUGSA meetings.

Susannah Mulvale | Ph. D. Level 3 | Psychology | firstname.lastname@example.org
As VP Community Relations, I am committed to continue serving all graduate students. I will liaison with members of YUGSA and community groups with similar concerns on and off our campus. I am available for consultation with graduate students on matters related to community campaign issues; bringing these matters before our Executive or Council, when appropriate, for information, discussion, and or for taking action as needed.

As VP Equity, I strive to ensure that all York Community Members are successful in their endeavours. I am here to help graduate students through difficult circumstances by advocating on their behalf.
