Students' Union, University of Alberta
Adam Brown is the Vice President External of the University of Alberta Students’ Union and Chair of CASA. He is entering his fourth year of studies working to complete a Bilingual Bachelors of Commerce, majoring in Business Economics and Law. He has also been involved extensively in student governance and politics at the University of Alberta, most recently as the former President of the Association des Universitaires de la Faculté Saint-Jean. With a French Immersion background, Adam has been a proud and active member of Alberta’s francophone community since 2015, in various youth advocacy and community organization efforts.
As the Chair of CASA for the 2018-2019 year, Adam’s priorities this year include, but are not limited to, advocating for more accessible student financial aid, addressing supports for Indigenous peoples to access post-secondary education, and advocating for the expansion of student employment programs subsidized by government. He would also like to look into the expansion of CASA’s membership, as well as continue building CASA’s partnership with the Quebec Student Union. Adam is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with so many talented student leaders from coast to coast in bettering post-secondary education for all students.
