In my quest for better communication, I'm not going to going to lie to you about what I "plan" on doing or what I "want" to do.

Our first goal is to increase communication within our community. We will be implementing open communication channels, gathering feedback for events, and bringing community concerns to the board. We believe that by doing so, we can create a more inclusive and collaborative environment for everyone.
Mental Health Services
Our second goal is to improve mental health services. Our university's should be a haven and people are already facing enough struggles between finding a job, exams and their extra curriculars.

We need support events, increased support from counsellors and a way for people to find the friends they need.

The EBuddy program aims to connect people who are taking or have taken a specific course with someone that's struggling in a flexible and casual manner.
