VP Academic - Liam Connel
I believe the biggest problem post-secondary students face is not knowing why they are in school or what they will do once they graduate. Under the current provincial government’s merit-based funding system, this problem can even affect students who feel like they have a clear path to graduation and to employment thereafter. My solution is to promote undergraduate studies and work with the co-op office to create more opportunities for students to work within their field, giving them an idea of life after graduation and showing the value of our school’s liberal education model to the Alberta government.

The Vice-President Academic has four main responsibilities. First, they manage undergraduate student representation on university committees, ensuring non-partisan internal advocacy for students.

Lastly, the VP Academic promotes undergraduate research, showcasing the ULeth liberal education philosophy.
