MEET THE SRA SCIENCE CAUCUS

Science Caucus Leader salims1@mcmaster.ca

Honours Biology and Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour III

Goals and Projects 

One of the projects that I am really looking to fulfill this year is my course management platform. I am looking to better define what the Assessment Ban period entails as well as work to provide a medium for students to report these infractions. I would also like to have professors enforce this period by writing the dates on the respective course syllabus. It is really easy for professors to take advantage of that five day break that we have before exams and working towards enforcing this can ease the end of season stress.

My Year Plan

Goals and Projects 

This year I'm really excited to engage students with the MSU more and empower science students to find their passions within the students union. My major projects include looking at how we treat data collection in the MSU, looking at optimizing club collaboration, and also ensuring that we are actively bringing together all the sub program societies within our amazing faculty. Outside of my platform, I am also on the internal governance committee and serve on the Exceutive board. Please do not hesistate to ask me about anything and everything math and technology, but also student related affairs. As a CA in Hedden Hall, I love to sit with my students and talk to them about university and how we can work towards providing better services for students, and I would love the opportunity to expand those conversations outside the halls of residence.

Fun Fact

I also have a passion for healthy active living, so if you ever want to hit up the gym, or need a meal prep buddy, let me know. Hiking and waterfalls chasing also fall into those categories. Thanks for reading this to whoever you are, and please don't hesitate to contact me I am always up for a chat.

Honours Life Science IV

My Year Plan

Goals and Projects 

This year I hope to work closely with the MSS and the Faculty of Science to ensure that our students have access to an optimal level of support throughout their academic journey at McMaster. The goals that I have for this coming year revolve around key themes for which I am extremely passionate. These themes include mental health support, financial aid, and academic success. The initiatives I hope to execute include advocating for a mandated faculty mental health and campus resources training, science scholarship opportunities, and course structure adjustments. I am extremely excited to watch these projects come to life and would love your input! If you are a student looking to get involved or interested in any of the areas listed above, please feel free to reach out!

Goals and Projects 

A project that I am look forward to this year is working on increasing diversity in governance. I hope to collect data through the MSU Governance and You Committee to see what we can do as a union to empower underrepresented groups.

Goals and Projects 

  • More Podcasted Courses: To increase the availability and accessibility of classroom lecture content

  • Mosaic Improvements: To improve the amount and quality of information presented online when course registration rolls around. This includes information on classroom accessibility and assessment style. 

  • Housemate Connector: To improve the current "Housemate Connector" service that the Off-Campus Resource Centre offers, by increasing the period for which it operates and by promoting it better to first year students.

Fun Fact

In grade one my friend accidentally knocked out my four front teeth. I spent many weeks after that using this new-found space in my mouth to whistle at the most inappropriate times during class.

Goals and Projects 

This year I'd like to increase the number of podcasted courses, work on improving the SAS Notetaker system, re-evaluate how we talk about health and wellness on University Campuses, and reduce and remove textbook fees for students by implementing open educational resources.

I'm the happy parent of over 140 little and some not so little plants. You'll see me on campus either because my hair is rather distinctive or because I'm hauling a plant home.
