As president of the YUGSA, my responsibility is to serve the York community and act as a representative for every graduate student. I chair YUGSA Council meetings and sit on a wide number of committees at York, such as Senate and FGS Council. One of my commitments as President is to see a much stronger link between our allies through York’s Cross-Campus Alliance, improving community services (such as YRT/VIVA and GO Transit), and enhancing graduate student representation on faculty councils. Feel free to email me your ideas, comments and suggestions!

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, it’s more important than ever to unite students and campus allies to push back. 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.

As VP Community Relations, I am committed to enhance community life for graduate students at York. 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 issues and to bring these matters before our Executive or Council for information, discussion, and or for taking action as needed.

As VP Equity, I strive to ensure that equity-based and accessibility issues for graduate students and York community members are addressed. I am here to help graduate students through difficult circumstances by advocating on their behalf in academic advocacy cases. By working with students and various advocacy groups to tackle equity-based issues, I believe we can bring positive change at York!
