Vice President Academic & External: Mackenzie Jarvin

My name is Mackenzie Jarvin, I am a third-year Environmental Sciences student and I am running to be your Vice President Academic and External. During the 2017-2018 academic year, I had the privilege of holding the position of Councillor, and I am the current Science Senator on Students’ Representative Council. I have had the opportunity to sit on University Senate as well, and a few of its committees. Being Councillor and Science Senator has provided me experience working for the ASU and has prepared me to take on this role. I have created and collaborated on numerous programs, with a specific focus on emotional support. Now, it is my goal if I were elected as VP Academic & External to achieve the following –
* Encourage the “W” date to be further delayed to near the end of semester
* Ensure the VP Academic & External position is advertised to students, and what assistance can be provided
* Work alongside the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) on their “Get out the Vote” campaign, to urge students to exercise their right to vote in the upcoming federal election
* Assist StudentsNS in advocating for MSI coverage for international students upon their arrival
It would be an honour to continue representing student needs and concerns. For the students, vote Mackenzie Jarvin for Vice President Academic and External. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]. Thank you, Acadia!
