Candidates for Vice President (External)
Christian Fotang is in his 3rd year of a Bachelor of Science program, majoring in Biology and minoring Psychology. This March 3rd/4th, he hopes to be your next UASU Vice President External.
Throughout his time at the U of A, he has participated in research and has been involved with several student groups. In March of 2020, Christian was sent by science students to represent them on the Students’ and General Faculties Council (GFC). Since then, Christian has worked to raise the concerns on behalf of his constituents surrounding academic restructuring and remote learning.
He has worked with OASIS and other faculty association leaders to create informative resources to keep students updated on issues. He has collaborated with the ISSS to ensure that science students have a robust faculty association.
Christian has also been an advocate for issues that go beyond academics. He has worked alongside policy committee members to revamp our Health and Wellness Policy and is in the process of working on a Campus Policing policy that will provide direction on ensuring student safety when dealing with campus and law enforcement officers. His governance and everyday interactions with students has made Christian a more educated advocate, ready to represent all students in governance. Christian believes in the power of student voices and student advocacy.
Away from governance, you will often find Christian sitting in disappointment watching Manchester United game day highlights or opening a cheap brew with his friends discussing the ails of Alberta politics.
