Senate: 1-year Term (1 seat available)
Why have you decided to run for this position?
“I’ve been on BUSAC for two years and I just really wanted to switch it up. I wanted to see what more government at Brock has to offer and I thought that it would be a good way to meet some of the actual professors and the higher administration. I wanted to bring my experience and passion for the student body to another governing body.”
If elected, what would you like to see the Senate accomplish?
“I would like to have it so that student’s experience and extra-curricular activities is on the actual university record, and that they have a legitimate certificate. I’d like to make it an Ontario-wide thing as well. I’d also like to see more research opportunities for non-science students especially. And I want the student body to be more aware of what the Senate is and what it does, and to have students able to contribute ideas to Senators.”
What makes you the best candidate for this position?
“I think it’s my experience. I started being politically involved in first year when I was a campaign manager, and since then I’ve tried to be on as many committees as possible and I’ve been on the BUSU Board of Directors. I feel like I’m most capable of doing it and I feel like I know best what the Senate actually does. I have the knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for this position.”
To the best of your knowledge, what is the Senate and what does it do?
“Two years ago, I didn’t really know what Senate was but then the student senators implemented some real change and I thought that was really cool. For undergraduate students, the Senate is where real change can be done. You can actually bring ideas to Senate and they have the capability of doing it.”
