University of Alberta Students' Union
Adam Brown is returning as both the Vice President External of the University of Alberta Students’ Union and Chair of CASA. He is entering his fifth 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, including 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 2019-2020 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 will also be working towards a successful Get Out the Vote campaign with the Board, staff, and membership for the federal election, as well as continuing to build 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.
