I’m Jon Kim, and I’m super excited to be running for the Commerce Student Senate Seat in this year’s elections! The Vancouver Senate of the University of British Columbia is the body that governs UBC and its policies. As the Commerce Student Senator, I would be a part of the Student Senate Caucus and up to two committees in the Senate as well as the CUS Academic Committee.
I hope to serve on the Awards committee that deals with scholarships and monetary awards. I am a strong supporter of Santa Ono’s 100-million-dollar Blue and Gold Campaign because monetary need should not limit one’s education. Institutions of learning should rise to meet the challenge of financial need and I’m glad to say that UBC is. I am dedicated joining that effort so not a single student is limited by their financial circumstances.
What drives me is my desire to serve this community. I have been overwhelmed by the experiences I’ve been granted and the relationships I have built, but I know that there are some that have not shared this experience and that breaks my heart. I am dedicated to work hard to make my interpretation of Sauder into a reality, and I would be honoured if you believed in me enough to grant me that ability through this role.
Vote JON KIM!
Hi, my name is Priscilla Chan and I’m currently a third-year student in Marketing. I am excited to announce that I’m running to be your CUS Senator in the upcoming 2018/19 election!
I am a passionate individual with a love for community. In my free time, I like to play sports, go on food adventures, and hold impromptu music sessions. This year, my time as a CUS Corporate Relations Manager and VP Internal for the Case Competition Club has given me ample knowledge and understanding about the Sauder community. Furthermore, being a UBC TACS volunteer, UBC Imagine Day leader, Imprint and Sauder Summit Ambassador have taught me effective interpersonal and strong management skills.
As your elected Senator, I will ensure that all your voices are heard when I represent our faculty at UBC’s Senate Caucus. As a student heading into fourth year, I’ve seen many improvements to our academic policy but there are still changes to be made. From curriculum to grading appeals, I will participate on Senate to benefit all commerce students. In addition, I will be promoting strong interfaculty relations by attending monthly meeting with other faculty’s senators and building strong relationships with them.
Thank you for your support and I wish everyone running in the elections the best of luck! If you have any comments or questions I would love to hear from you. Feel free to reach out to me using any of the platforms listed below:
