I would like to stand for the position of Alternate Councillor for Academic Faculty (Faculty of Education)
My name is Brenda Reyes Ayala and I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS). I joined the University of Alberta in the Fall of 2018. I would appreciate the opportunity to serve as an alternate councillor. As a person who received their education in a different cultural context, the U.S., I am proud to be a member of an active union and I would like to learn more about the roles and responsibilities we all share as academic members. I am particularly interested in issues of EDI and hope to lend my efforts to combat the devastating effects of the current budget cuts on the Alberta educational system.
