Rowan is a first-year student in the animal biology (honours) program, and is interested in advocating for science students as a second-year ISSS councillor for 2016-2017. Having served on advisory committees for the Office of the Registrar and University of Alberta Libraries, she has represented science students’ interests on issues ranging from financial aid, to community building, to textbook accessibility. Her passions for interdisciplinary science, accountable and transparent governance, and experiential learning models motivate her campaign for council. If elected, she will draw from past advisory experience, involvement with various science-focused student groups, and future input from students to maintain relevancy. Her aim is to represent the diversity of second-year science student interests, and not merely those of an isolated friend group.
