The Year Ahead

A Letter From Your TWUSA President  Dear Student Body,

Welcome back to another year at Trinity Western University! As your Student Association President, I would like to introduce TWUSA’s vision for the year: Leading, Partnering and Advancing with the Community. Through this, I believe that we will grow together, purposefully and intentionally, with the campus, and with the greater community. From our activities to our student representation, we want to set the pace and come alongside the university’s vision, progressing in this new year for TWU – join us as we endeavor to positively influence our university culture and work together to advance community.

This year, we hope to impact students’ lives in five specific areas:

1) Student Relations. TWUSA is here to serve you and is comprised of student leaders who are ready to walk alongside you in your university experience. We want the TWUSA lounge to be more approachable, and a place known as a friendly and welcoming area where you can have access to our resources and connect with other students.

2) Our goal with student representation is to ensure that the students’ voices are heard and that there is active communication on campus. This also means that we as students have the opportunity to be a part of important university decisions. I would encourage you, as the school years moves along, to have a conversation with at least one or two TWUSA members regarding their special projects moving forward.

3) Our Communications team wants you to stay connected by ways to reach students via personal marketing, videos, and blogs. These things are imperative to a successful year, so find us online or through a TWUSA member to stay in the loop! Our desire is to provide information that is easily accessible, offering everyone the opportunity to get involved in the TWU community.

4) Events are another integral part of what we do on campus. Through our events, we hope to advocate strong involvement and participation from all student groups. We are looking forward to partnering with students and other leaders with their own initiatives as well, and if you would like more info on funding available for that, check in at the TWUSA lounge.

5) TWUSA wants to be aware of the spiritual development that TWU is so well known for. We are lovers of a wonderful God, and we want our lives to be an offering that honours him. This year, we will be continuing weekly prayer with the school community and we encourage the student body to attend as we pray for different branches of the university.

We hope you know that we are honored to serve you, especially at such a pivotal time in our history as a university. Our focus is on you and your experience here. We are open to hearing your opinions and covet your insight and ideas. Challenge us by keeping us accountable with your voice. We look forward to working with you this year and for what this year has in store.

Blessings with your year ahead,

Mackenzie Dunn

President, TWUSA
