  • Alam Khehra (Brighter SFU)

Hi Everyone!

My name is Alam Khehra and I am running to earn your trust and serve as your next SFSS Vice President Student Life.  I have been actively involved within the SFSS for the past 2 years, especially in the social aspect of the society’s work in the past year. I have gotten a chance to work closely with a few board members, including the current VP Student Life. I am running alongside dedicated and experienced individuals in my team, Brighter SFU.

My platform illustrates a few of the goals I wish to accomplish in the upcoming term if I were to be elected. My platform consists of 4 main pillars:

Expand Campus Wide Events on All Campuses

  • Not only do I want to work on hosting a greater number of events, I want these events to be hosted on all 3 of our campuses.
  • Hosting larger scale events: this includes the formation new large scale projects and the expansion of current ongoing events.

Support FSU, DSU, Club and Student Group Initiatives

  • I find it vital to support student groups in their initiatives. I plan on doing this through a streamlined way of communicating with Student Groups.
  • I would like to work on providing more support to “external” student groups by working with the granting committee to establish a funding platform for these groups. Moreover, I would like to start the conversation between Board and Greek Organizations on what they would like to see and what the SFSS can do for them.

Fostering Community by Hosting More Diverse Events

  • Provide and host a greater number of events that help students in their personal growth, academics, and health and well-being in order to create a positive SFU community. Among the various groups I would like to work with to accomplish this goal, some include the Student Health Advisory Committee, Hi F.I.V.E, and Active Bi-Stander Network.
  • Increasing the student presence in our athletic and recreation teams by finding new ways to engage students in our athletics and supporting the stadium project.

Establishing More Student Volunteer Opportunities

  • See more student leader’s participating in events that are hosted by the SFSS by having more student volunteers serve as the project leads for our major events, while still receiving my assistance in every way possible. This allows students to earn valuable skillsets and bring about new student leaders.
  • Work on continuing and improving the year end Volunteer Gala to showcase involved SFSS students and student groups.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read my platform. I encourage you to have a look at the platforms of other candidates on Brighter SFU, as they are determined and experienced individuals. I would love to receive your feedback or sit down with any students about any concerns they may have. I have left my contact information below, so please feel free to contact me at any point.

Thank you.
