My name is Cathy Jiang, and I’m thrilled to be running to be your next VP External!

As the current Associate VP External, I’m aware of the responsibility that comes with this position, which I’m ready to take on full force! Having facilitated both committees within this portfolio (Corporate Relations and Science Careers Month), I am knowledgeable of their operation, and have ideas for improvement.

My platform focuses on
1) Increasing PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES by
• Holding more events to provide exposure to academia,
research, and develop professionalism
• Increasing collaboration with departmental clubs to
ensure the diversity of our faculty is accurately represented during Careers Month

2) Providing LOWER COST textbooks and DISCOUNTS by
• Introducing science exclusive deals with businesses,
increasing the longevity of such partnerships
• Hosting a ‘textbook market’ with conveniently located
lower-cost educational material
3) Increasing scope and longevity of relationships with
alumni and external organizations by
• Expanding publicity and outreach of alumni engagement
programs
• Working with the Communications portfolio to increase
the number of campus-wide Public Relations events

It would be an honour to be elected so I could dedicate
my time to provide you with a memorable undergraduate experience.

Thank you for your consideration.
