2021 Students’ Union Elections Platforms: Board of Governors

Board of Governors Candidates


Nasik Amanullah


My name is Nasik Amanullah – I am a fourth-year BBA student at Laurier’s Waterloo Campus, and

I am running for a position on the Board of Governors and Senate.

As an active member of the Laurier community, I have participated as a Residence Learning Community member, Residence Life Don, Prism Resources employee, and – most recently – a Laurier Club President. These experiences provide me with a holistic understanding of the struggles and concerns faced by students, throughout their academic career – it will be my duty, and a privilege, to advocate for the policies that will best enhance the Laurier experience for students of all programs, alike.

Should I be elected, I will focus my efforts on i) improving remote and in-person course delivery, ii) facilitating better support and communication between Laurier students and faculty, and iii) ensuring the responsible allocation of university funding, and opposing tuition increases, where reasonable.


Brandon Vale


For results, engaged, and committed.

My name is Brandon Vale, and I am a third-year business student. I am seeking to represent undergraduate students on the Students’ Union Board of Directors and the Laurier Board of Governors. Through my leadership as a Student Senator on the Laurier Senate, I have proven my ability to work collaboratively with others to achieve results and engage with the undergraduate student body and administration to address student concerns. I believe in the importance of the overall student experience at Laurier, and it would be a privilege to represent my peers on the Students’ Union Board of Directors and the Laurier Board of Governors.
