EDUCATIONAL STUDIES (incl. Adult Ed diploma program, 3 seats)
Emilie Salvi (Ed. Studies) is currently our head of both the dark arts club and R.A. for a professor (we dare not speak his name). When not smiting defenseless Freshmen, she enjoys swimming and re-runs of Seinfeld.
Some say she’s eliminated the last 6 Ed. Studies Reps. Others say that she owns the only Taco Bell in Iqaluit. All we know is she’s Sophie Doyle!
EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY (incl. Instructional Tech diploma program, 3 seats)
JUNESSE CHRISTIAANS is excited to be part of the student association for her second year. Like many students in the department, she has a background that overlaps with many interests and wants to promote more collaboration between programs in the department and the students themselves. Like many students in their second year, she is focused on the importance of communication, participation, and awareness. These factors are needed to build a strong, social community, in which people can openly exchange and develop their ideas. She believes that we can all learn from one another, and that diversity is the key to fostering a more open perspective on an industry that continues to change and grow.

Mark Kozma is a legend in his own time. He fled the USA after angering both the FBI and the Mafia with his unique ability to convince politicians to give him money for his shady side business’ including running a gambling ring specializing in herding cat races.

PhD PROGRAM (3 seats)
