Robyn Paches VP Operations & Finance

As the Vice President Operations and Finance, Robyn has been elected for a second term to steer the direction of the Students’ Union’s businesses and finances. In the 2017/18 term, Robyn has three goals. He aims to ensure that the Myer Horowitz Theatre Renovation Project will create a theatre that meets student’s needs. He wants to work collaboratively with student groups to increase the vibrancy of our campus bars, Room at the Top & Dewey’s. Lastly, he is striving to champion the discussion on addressing the University of Alberta’s approximately $800 million deferred maintenance bill with a report on student maintenance priorities. A simple statement can summarize all three of these goals: Robyn wants to Bring Students Back to Campus.

Last year, after completing his undergrad in Business, receiving his Bachelor of Commerce with a focus in Operations Management, Robyn served his first term as VP Operations & Finance. During his first term, Robyn worked to increase the fresh & healthy food options on campus. He pushed to ensure spaces on campus are relevant to students and student groups alike. Robyn also advocated for a renewed focus on student safety at the university. He played a key role in negotiating a fair U-Pass deal for students, revitalized the branding for Room at the Top and kick-started the Myer Horowitz Theatre Renovation Project. At the conclusion of the 2016/17 year, the Students’ Union saw record revenue and cost saving measures under Robyn’s direction.
