Himasha Rao – Candidate VP Academic

My name is Himasha Rao and I am running to be your next VP academic. I am currently in my third year of my major in biological sciences and minor in business. This year I have served as a director of public relations and a 3rd year councillor for ISSS. In the past few months I have focused on finding solutions on giving science students a way to network outside of the faculty. I aim to focus on improving academic support to students through increasing awareness and strengthening programs already in place. I wish to help students discover new opportunities through my position in ISSS and innovate new ideas to fix current and recurring issues. I want to put students first and coordinate policies that best reflect our interests. One of my main goals is to help first year students gain knowledge and understanding on the support available to them.
