Director- Centre for Food
Hello, my name is Andrew Nunez-Alvarez and I am running for the position of Director for the Center for Food. I am looking forward to personally meeting every single Whitby campus student I can throughout my campaign. I am a first year Horticulture Technician student passionate about leadership, horticulture therapy, and commercial cannabis production. Prior to this experience, I’ve been involved in a variety of student government positions in both high school and university. From my experience working with Durham College Students Inc. this past year, I’ve been able to identify key issues that need to be managed by DCSI’s first inaugural student government. My intention for running for a Board of Directors position, rather than an executive position, is to ensure that executive staff are effectively managed. The Board of Directors hold a major influence on the proceedings of all executive decisions, which is why I feel I am best suited for this position. My goal is to rectify the disconnect between Durham College’s Oshawa and Whitby campuses. These campuses need to start working cohesively in order to establish a solid foundation that will allow for the student experience to thrive in. Let’s look forward to unifying both college campuses under a dedicated student government, and a fateful return of active clubs & societies. Let’s grow Whitby campus together!
