VICE-PRESIDENT ACADEMIC

No statement submitted.

My name is Joshua Millard and I am running to be the VP Academic, giving you better value for your fees. After a year working with the CSU, it is clear to me that changes need to be made. This starts with stronger representation, ensuring the University understands who’s money keeps the lights on, and better transparency, regularly updating you on my progress advancing your interests. Students need to know that their money is well spent, and only the strongest candidate can do that. What has the current VP Academic done for you? It is time for change.

VICE-PRESIDENT EQUITY AND SUSTAINABILITY

No statement submitted.

My name is Anna Rempel. Through my work with the CSU over the last year, I have become increasingly passionate about advocating for students’ rights through both direct involvement and in supporting the initiatives of others. As VP Equity and Sustainability, my job would not simply be to further my own goals, but to actively support and coordinate with the representatives of traditionally marginalized groups on campus to assure that their voices are continually uplifted. I want to work alongside my fellow students from an intersectional perspective to bring about the most positive and accessible educational experience possible for all.

VICE-PRESIDENT EXTERNAL

University is hard. I see friends and peers struggle with everything from textbook costs to mental health issues to a lack of housing.  That is why I am running to be your Vice-President External again. I have been running campaigns since grade 5 and haven’t looked back. During my first term as VP I saw over $1.5 billion invested in students.  In the coming year I will advocate for cheaper alternatives to text books, tenancy rights for residence students, reduction in the student loan interest rate and more. Vote Noah Berson to be the experienced voice that advocates for you.

VICE-PRESIDENT FINANCE AND SERVICES

Hi! I’m Dilnavaz Dhillon (Dylan) and I am running to be your next VP of Finance and Services of the CSU. I am a Business student, planning to major in Finance. I have been involved with CSU previously serving as a member of Board of Directors as a Senate Representative. Apart from the CSU, I have served as a Senator to the Capilano University Senate and am running for re-election this term. I plan to work closely with the University and External organizations dealing with the CSU in the best interest of the students.

I want to connect with students to ensure they’re getting the most out of their CSU membership and are aware of the services available to them. Before getting involved I wasn’t aware of many CSU services offered, which shouldn’t be the case! I’m excited by the opportunity to build on the great work within the CSU, and partner with other students to support them in any way possible. My past year representing students on the CSU Board and University Senate expanded my passion for policy and tackling student issues to make education accessible.

VICE-PRESIDENT STUDENT LIFE

My name is Yats (Yatharth Palat) and I’m running for re-election as VP STUDENT LIFE.

Last year was the best year for Student Life at CAP ever, and I was at the helm of most of it- Captivate, Halloween, Rail Jam,Clubs day and now Rock the boat. But I want to build on what we’ve got, to give the students at Cap the best they deserve, continuously. You’ve seen me around everywhere on campus, always working to engage people, giving students a chance to laugh, relax and socialize. Together, let’s make this new year even better than the last!!!

ACCESSIBILITY JUSTICE COORDINATOR

Hello, I’m Andrew Dillman and am running for the position of accessibility justice coordinator. Having spent the last year in this position, I’m aware of how much work needs to be done to sustain this collective and ensure that those facing access needs at Cap U are being heard. If elected as AJC, I will pursue bringing American Sign Language classes to the university, secure a space for the collective plus the implementation of decompression spaces, and double the amount of therapy dog visits.

FIRST NATIONS STUDENTS LIAISON

My name is Vanessa Lewis, I am running for the First Nations Students Liaison position on the Capilano Students’ Union board of directors (CSU BOD). I am Ojibwe from Ontario and Cree from Manitoba; my traditional name is North Star Dancing and I am from the Wolf Clan. Since starting the BBA program, I regularly use the Kéxwusm-áyakn Student Centre which has allowed me to connect with my fellow Indigenous students. Through these connections and engaging new students I will ensure that Indigenous students are represented on the CSU BOD. Together we can cree-ate an extraordinary experience.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS LIAISON

Greetings everyone! I’m running for the position of International Students’ Liaison at the CSU. I bring with me an extensive experience as a mentor at the Centre for International Experience (CIE), which put me through an amazing exposure with the international community on campus. Lately, there have been a few repetitive complaints from international students that I come across often but am helpless because I am in no power to put your opinions across. But NOW! You have the power to elect me as your voice, to represent your issues. Let’s make it work. Please VOTE!
