Meet the 2024 Election candidates

Pedro Ribeiro Lopes Pinto de Almedia

Hi fellow science students, my name is Pedro, I am a fourth year student in Immunology and Infection. I am hoping to have the chance to represent you next year as the President of ISSS, and continue some of the work I have done in the UASU. For the past few months, I have been advocating to the University through the role of Vice-President (Academic) of the University of Alberta Students' Union for improvements to the student experience, from issues with the Code of Student Behaviour, to syllabus access and even access to buildings after hours.


I am hoping to bring my experience into the role of ISSS President, to make some meaningful change in the science student experience, both in relation to student life and academics, by advocating to our Faculty Council on things such as lecture recordings and class flexibility, and by improving ISSS' engagement with students!


If this resonates with you, please vote Pedro for President on March 20th and 21st
