Education (Coursework) Officer and Engineering and IT Nominee:

Education (Coursework) Officer: 

Hi everyone, I’m Ezra and I’m hoping to represent you as the Education (Coursework) Officer. My university journey started in 2017 as an international student and I’ve met a diverse range of people and work in multiple roles, including Host Program Director for UMSU, committee member for multiple clubs, and a student representative for a faculty’s Teaching and Learning committee.

I believe that this role requires someone that understand both the difficulty that students face and how the university system works. If elected to this position, I will ensure that all students’ voice is heard while working together with the university in providing the best outcomes for students. As someone who is currently working full-time as a high school teacher, I understand the difficulties that students face in keeping their work-life balance. At the same time, my experience demonstrates my ability to improve the academic outcomes of in an education setting. My approach will focus in creating a positive environment where people work together for a better outcome.

Engineering and IT Faculty Representative:

Hi everyone, I’m Ezra and I’m hoping to represent you as the Engineering and IT Faculty representative. I am currently working full-time as a high school teacher and studying part time in the Graduate Diploma in Data Science. My current experience will allow me to provide key perspectives of the struggles that students might face. Furthermore, I started university in 2017 as an international student and I have a lot of experience working in committees within university and university clubs. I understand how to communicate students’ voices into key actions that the university can do to improve students’ experience.

I am quite new to the Engineering and IT faculty, having completed degrees outside of this faculty. However, I believe this will allow me to provide unique perspectives of new students’ experience while actively listening to other students who have longer experience within the faculty.
