Student-at-Large (16 seats available)
Why have you decided to run for this position?
“It would be disingenuous to say that I’m running solely to make the student experience better. I see personal gain through experiences I can gain through the position. Partly why I’m running is to represent the student body and also use my position to let students know there are areas of the school you can get involved in. Basically, through being able to participate in the council I’m gaining important transferable skills that will in turn hopefully inspire students to get involved.”
Why do you believe you should be elected as a student-at-large?
“Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what I believe but I do feel that I’ve gained enough experience in my four years here that I can communicate concerns through the council. I can write a list of 40 different positive character traits that someone running for my position should have, but what I believe and what the student population believe may not be the same thing. That’s something students have to decide on their own.”
How do you plan to represent the full diversity of students and programs on campus?
“I will represent the full diversity of Brock primarily through communication. We are a campus rich in diversity and being able to speak to individuals on campus through listening, and listening is the key word, would help with being able to communicate the diversity of the students. Additionally, I plan on representing the full diversity of the campus through being aware, and knowing more about programs, departments and services we as an institution provide.”
To the best of your knowledge, what is BUSAC and what does it do?
“BUSAC is a faculty based council that represents the students. It recognizes student ideas complaints or suggestions and tries to involve the student body with issues concerning Brock. BUSAC helps alleviate those problems and promotes communication between faculty and the student base at Brock university.”
