ASA News You Can Use: From the President to You

BY TAYLOR JOHNSON

As the Dean Selection process has now entered the open stages of the interview process, the two candidates that have been selected as finalists will be on our campus on Nov. 19 and 20. They will be doing public presentations that will be open to students, staff and faculty. The presentations will be taking place in the Chapel on Monday and Tuesday from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. both days.

It is incredibly important that students attend this event and engage with the candidates as one of these candidates could potentially be the Dean of this campus and Faculty for the next five years. Again, myself and Alex Ho are the two student representatives on the Dean Selection Committee and we would both really appreciate your feedback on the candidates so we can make the most informed decision when the time comes. If you have any questions or concerns about these presentations or what they will be doing while they are here on campus please don’t hesitate to contact myself at asapres@ualberta.ca or Alex at asavpcom@ualberta.ca

The ASA will also be having our Fall AGM meeting on Nov. 28 at 5:30 p.m. If you are at all curious about what your representatives have been up to this term, or you have any comments or questions you would like to bring up, this is the place to do it. We will also be having a discussion around Substance Use on Campus and it would be great to get a lot of students out so we can collect feedback to provide to administration on what students would like to see. Please bring your friends and I look forward to seeing you there!

Wellness Week is also right around the corner! It will be happening from Nov. 26 – 30. The Awareness Committee has put a lot of hard work into ensuring that this will be a great week full of fun events for students to take part in. You can look forward to things like free Booster Juice, pet therapy dogs on campus, a financial workshop, international games night, and a whole lot more. A schedule of activities will be posted soon so keep your eyes peeled for that!
