Shane Scott VP Academic

Shane is a 5th year Political Science student with a minor in sociology. A first generation university student, Shane has spent most of his life in Calgary before moving to his new home at the University of Alberta. His passions include advocating for the interests of all students, discussing social issues and current events, and giving a voice to groups often overlooked. In his spare time Shane likes to hang out with friends, discover new music, and (obsessively) watch the news.

Shane has a strong interest in student representation and it is something that has not only informed his day-to-day work as a VP, but it has informed his involvement for years past. Shane has been a part of a variety of student initiatives such as serving as Co-President in his high school's Student Council and helping to establish a Principal's Advisory Council, and serving as a member and active of alumni of the Minister of Education’s Student Advisory Council of the Speak Out: Student Engagement Initiative. Shane’s interest in social justice issues led him to volunteer with an anti-racism student group called Students for Change, before establishing a Gay-Straight Alliance in his high school. Shane also volunteered as a Youth Leader at Camp Fyrefly, a leadership camp for LGBTQ+ youth, and helped out with a fundraising initiative for that camp.

In his role, Shane will support student representatives at various levels of governance, establish a mechanism for students to access course syllabus across faculties, and create conversations around what diversity looks like in our classrooms. As VP Academic, Shane sits on General Faculties Council - the legislative body overseeing academic and student affairs at the UofA - a variety of its’ committees, he chairs Students’ Council's Nominating Committee, and he maintains regular meetings with university administrators to ensure the collective student voice is heard.

Shane looks forward to representing the students of the University of Alberta and working to ensure our campus is a fair, open and inclusive place for everyone.
