UWSA – University of Windsor Students' Alliance


Eric Joshi

Running for Board of Governors’ Representative

Outline your relevant experience for this position

I am currently the First-Year Representative at UWSA. I have volunteered at several organisations such as Youth Empowering Youth and UBC Geering Up. In my high school, I joined the student government, grad council, membership and Youth Action Committee as a member.

What specific initiatives and projects would you undertake related to this role?

I would like to ensure safety for students and sanitation for washrooms in the University. I would also like to introduce more events which can surface creativity and reduce stress for students. If Sun is the UWindsor Management and Planets are students, I wish to be the gravity between them. A transparent government is ideal.

How do you plan on facilitating positive work relationships within the UWSA Board, members at large and UWindsor administration?

I plan on facilitating positive work relationships with the UWSA team by communicating regularly in regards to the progress and involvement of my initiatives and projects while maintaining law and order. I plan to be a good listener so that I am aware of the team’s relevant plans.

Describe the importance of the UWSA in your own words

UWSA is the student government body of University of Windsor. It is necessary for UWSA to exist in order to represent students’ voices and provide services to students to enhance their experience in the university. They provide student jobs and campus services, which is very beneficial for students. UWSA also runs social justice campaigns which are important to build values and learn how to make a difference in the society. Psychologically, it is necessary for UWSA to exist in the university so the students do not feel that they are being governed by only adults, and having a student government provides a hint of independence.
