Keith Thompson – BUSAC Candidate Profile

Keith Thompson

Student-at-Large (16 seats available)

Why have you decided to run for this position?

“I was encouraged to run by some of my friends who said I’d be a good fit for BUSAC. I also have some friends on the current council and have gone to a couple of meetings to see what it’s about. I felt that I could bring a different perspective and voice to the meetings, and I know that I’m capable of bringing in good ideas and perspectives.”

Why do you believe you should be elected as a student-at-large?

“I’m interested in the well-being of students at Brock and I’m not afraid of voicing my opinion. I feel like Brock is moving in the right direction but there’s a lot that we still need to do and I’m one of those people that will stand up for what they believe in. If there’s something that is important for students and needs to be done on their behalf, I’m not afraid to stand for them, even if there’s some people that may disagree. I’ve been fairly involved and I know what’s going, so I’ll be able to bring students’ concerns and ideas to BUSAC.”

How do you plan to represent the full diversity of students and programs on campus?

“As a double major, I’m a part of two different faculties. I’ve also been involved with a variety of groups and programs on campus. As an executive member of UNICEF Brock and a member of a few other clubs I have met people from all different kinds of programs and backgrounds. I’m currently working on a project with Aboriginal Education Council. A diverse Brock is very important to me and I hope that I can be that voice for students. I’m available to talk and meet people and everyone’s welcome to come up and talk to me. I like learning about different people, cultures and perspectives.”

To the best of your knowledge, what is BUSAC and what does it do?

“BUSAC is the intermediary between BUSU and the students’ best interest. They make sure that the decisions that come through BUSU reflect the student needs and they make sure the students are taken care of, whether at the club level or funding level. BUSAC works to ensure that the actions of the BUSU executives are in line with the best interest of the students.”
