As the name suggests, the VP Policy/Academic is the person responsible for making sure that all PAPMers become the nerds they’re supposed to be, and planning the ostracization ritual when they don’t turn out nerdy enough. They plan academic-related programming for AKCESS, including things like guest speakers, mentorships, as well as the annual Are You Smarter Than A Kroeger Kid trivia contest. The VP Policy/Academic is also responsible for overseeing the AKCESS constitution, ensuring that we don’t become (too) corrupt. The VP Policy/Academic is automatically appointed as one of two PAPM councillors on the Carleton Academic Student Government.
The current VP Policy/Academic is Yana Brion.
Specialization: International Studies
Favourite thing about PAPM: The community!
This year, I’m looking forward to: working with a great executive team to make everything we all love about PAPM even better.
