Message from the 2019-2020 Student Concerns Subcommitte

image001 copyMy name is Awish Aslam and I am excited to serve as the Chair and Central Representative of the Student Concerns Subcommittee.  I will be working alongside Emma Kay (Eastern Representative) and Nicole Malette (Western Representative), and together we aim to address the issues most pertinent to students across the country.  This year we will continue to run the programming established by our previous chair, Jennifer Adkins, and we also plan to introduce several new initiatives as we strive to build an inclusive, supportive, and informed student culture.  We welcome all feedback from our members, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and be sure to sign up for our mailing list to receive updates from our team.  We are looking forward to an engaging 2019-2020 academic year!

Who are we?

The Student Concerns Subcommittee consists of three student representatives from across Canada, including a Western representative, a Central representative, and an Eastern representative. Each representative is elected, along with all the members of the executive at the Annual General Meeting held in conjunction with the CSA Annual Conference. Together, this committee represents over 500 graduate students (Undergraduate, Masters and PhD students/candidates) members of the CSA.

Our mandate is to:

  1. Stimulate and facilitate communication among students year-round;
  2. Act as a voice for sociology students from Western, Central and Eastern Canada;
  3. Increase the visibility of sociology students organization-wide;
  4. Provide a venue for the dissemination of student-relevant sociological information at the CSA Annual Conference; and,
  5. Attend annual CSA Conferences.
