Grace Halpin

Candidate for Vice-President Campus Life

Hello everyone! My name is Grace Halpin and I am running to be your Vice-President Campus Life. I am a Human Kinetics student and an avid student leader here at UBC Okanagan. This year, I served as the Faculty of Health and Exercise Science Representative for the SUO, as well as the Human Kinetics Student Association Treasurer. The opportunities I engaged in inspired me to take it one step further and be an executive director for the SUO. The committees I am currently on work towards student success, well-being, and campus-life. I know that I have relevant and suitable experience needed to be your next Vice-President Campus Life! The Office of Vice-President Campus Life holds large responsibilities, obligations, and expectations for students. I am committed to meeting your expectations. Elect me, and I will operate with integrity, accountability, and inclusion. As the 2022/2023 Vice President Campus Life, I will ensure three things: More inclusive Frosh, Recess, and other events throughout the year to better serve the student body; A more vibrant Campus Life both in and out of Student Union spaces. Furthering the relationship with our resource centres, SVPRO, and UBC Recreation to ensure student health and wellness needs are met; Work towards more open communication and transparency between the SUO and all students. Meeting so many incredible students and staff at this institution and within the SUO has given me the chance to be a voice and advocate for students’ needs. I hope that I can be a person who inspires and supports you! Thank you for voting for me.
