Danika McConnell

Former student leader at the Students’ Association of MacEwan University (SAMU) and now finishing up her degree in Communication Studies, Danika McConnell was the inaugural Vice President External at SAMU for the 2015/16 term, followed by President in 2016/17. Throughout her terms, Danika served as Chair of the Edmonton Student Alliance, Chair of CASA's Member Relations Committee, and member of both CASA's Advocacy and Policy Committees. 

Danika’s core focuses throughout her time at SAMU revolved around the beginning development and construction of the association’s first students’ building. She also dedicated much of her time toward the elimination of violence on campus — a cause Danika is still dedicated toward.
