Hello AU undergraduate students,

I am in my third year as a full-time AU student enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts in Political Science program. When I’m not busy studying, you can catch me tutoring math and sciences, reading, or hiking! During the 2021-22 term, I served as an AUSU Students’ Councillor and was a part of both the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) and Member Engagement and Communications (MEC) committees. I am very passionate about student advocacy and believe that we should use student voices to create change. My focus is on accessibility and innovation. I would like to make AU more accessible and easier to use for the general student body. Many courses have outdated materials and resources that are simply not accessible. I also believe students should have more say in whom their instructors and tutors are, similar to that of other institutions.

I would like to acknowledge that I write from Fort McMurray located on Treaty 8 land: the traditional territory of the Cree and Dene and the unceded territory of the Métis and an ancient gathering place to  Indigenous peoples for thousands of years.

Sincerely,

Dur-E-Najaf Syed
