Fahim Rahman President

Fahim Rahman convocated in June 2016 with a B.Sc in Chemistry (Specialization), and served as the Students' Union VP Academic for 2015 - 16. He has served on a number of University committees starting in 2013 as an active member of student governance: first serving as a VP Academic and President of the student association in the Faculty of Science, followed by a term with the Students' Union.

With an acute understanding of how our university operates, he hopes to improve the quality and affordability of education on our campus. He actively participated in the planning process for the new Institutional Strategic Plan, and once approved, is excited to see how our university progresses on its goals. In particular, he’d like to see more experiential learning opportunities for students here.

As Students' Union President for 2016 - 17, Fahim looks forward to working with the new leadership at the University of Alberta and with our provincial government on issues that matter to students. He also looks forward to working with a new team of Students' Union executives on items such as completing the provincial government’s adult learning review to empowering student groups in residences.

In his spare time, he enjoys reading up on issues around the world, discovering new music and going to the gym. He welcomes your feedback by either connecting in person or online @uasupresident.
