VP Academic - Rebecca Parkkari
Hi Folks! My name is Rebecca Parkkari and I use she/her pronouns. I am pleased to be your Vice President Academic for the 2021/2022 term. I am currently in the fourth year of my Indigenous Studies Major, though this will be my fifth year at the UofL.
Something I am super passionate about is the promotion and advocacy of Mental Health. I will be looking for ways to bring Mental Health events and educational opportunities to our student body. I would like to provide students with the information on how to understand mental wellness and bolster the tools they have to maintain positive mental health.
Something I have heard from students is that they have difficulties accessing undergraduate research opportunities. I will be working on ways to better provide undergraduate students with knowledge on research opportunities. I am interested in working with the University administration to produce a streamlined method of communicating the research opportunities available to undergraduate students, so they are able to gain experience in their field early on in their post-secondary careers.
I am here to support all undergraduate students with Grade Appeals and Academic Appeals. If you ever have a question or need help preparing your grade/academic appeal please reach out, I would love to help you out however I can!
