Meagan Malcolm ᒣᑲᐣ ᒪᓬᑯᒼ
Boozhoo, my name is Meagan. I am a third-year Criminal Justice major. I am grateful to be a part of an all women-of-colour executive team and be the first Indigenous woman president. In 2018/19, I served as the Female Co-president of Indigenous Students’ Association (ISA), and was happy to change the name from the Aboriginal Student Council in the spirit of progress and decolonization. My goal for my term is to be able to represent University of Winnipeg students the best way I can. I want to hear what students have to say so feel free to e-mail or visit me at the UWSA Office in the Bulman Student Centre with your questions and ideas.
Vice-President External Affairs
Hey! I am happy to be serving you this year as your UWSA Vice President of External Affairs. I have experience organizing events for the Students of Colour Collective (SOCC), coordinating the Women’s and Gender Studies Student Association, and being an active member at CKUW. As your VPEA, I hope to focus on bringing a more inclusive and intersectional approach within the UWSA and listen to what students want to see from their association. In the upcoming year, I will be in partnership with the local organizations like QPOC Winnipeg and Sunshine House to create more awareness around marginalized people not only in our university but also in the surrounding community. I will be working closely with the Canadian Federation of Students to lobby and advocate for student’s right to accessible tuition and mental health services. I hope to continue to bring awareness around sexualized and Gender Based violence on university campuses. I love getting to know new people so feel free to let me know any ideas you may have!
Vice-President Student Affairs
My name’s Noelle and I’m so excited to be serving you as the Vice President of Student Affairs. I am a proud member of the Students of Colour Collective (SOCC), and love connecting with different student groups on campus. In my free time, I love to do photography and I work as an organizer for a local artist collective/pop-up called RIND. I hope to create more awareness around student advocacy opportunities, partner with local organizations who engage with community members around our university, provide extra resources to marginalized students, and so much more. I am excited to work with this campus, and would like to hear what you care about and what you want to see.

In my free time, I love to go to spin class and spend as much time outdoors as possible.

As VPIA, I will make sure that we, as a team, use every dollar wisely and be open to hear your suggestions on how we can improve our budget. Being the Vice President of Student Internal Affairs requires a lot of responsibility, organization, teamwork and a high level of integrity. I promise to maintain that expectation to the fullest extent. I am excited to have a great year serving you alongside the other 3 amazing executives.
