Hello! Bonjour!

My name is Levi Flaman and I am running for re-election to a third consecutive term on the University of Alberta Students’ Union Students’ Council.

Last year I pledged to work on getting the Open Studies per-term credit limit raised or eliminated. Throughout the year, I did manage to lay the foundation for this change however my efforts ultimately stalled at the university level with the Office of the Registrar who oversees Open Studies Students. While there are some exceptions to the limit such as the Visiting Student Certificate Program, Fresh Start Program and Transition Year Program students, most Open Studies students are limited to Part-Time Studies. Last year, 75% of Open Studies were Part-Time while the year prior it was 72%. And when compared to other universities in the province, University of Calgary limits Open Studies students to 9 credits, Mount Royal University and University of Lethbridge limit to 15 credits while Macewan University has no limit at all. This year with the help of VP-Elect Scott, I believe we can make a move on this and get it through the Academic Planning Committee and General Faculties Council.

On March 22 and 23, please entrust Levi Flaman, your University of Alberta Students’ Union Students’ Council Open Studies Councillor with another year to represent you.
