It’s been almost a year since the 2018 University of Toronto Students’ Union (UTSU) elections concluded, and the campaign for the next executive team is already underway. The Varsity reviews the work that the outgoing executives have done to fulfil their pledges, in this first article of a two-part series.
Vice-President Equity Ammara Wasim
The role of Vice-President Equity is to advocate for the interests of marginalized students, campaign to make U of T a more inclusive space, and ensure the union is acting equitably.
In her profile with The Varsity prior to the 2018 campaign period, Wasim pledged to increase equity education and training on campus, improve services for marginalized students and visible minorities, collaborate with the “new equity collectives to lobby the university on equity issues,” and work with advocacy groups such as the Black Students’ Association (BSA).
