Mr. Saeel Abbas
Hello, Fellow Graduate Students,
Congratulations to the new graduate students and a very warm welcome to our returning students! It is my pleasure to represent our graduate student community as the Executive Director of Finance at the Graduate Students’ Union for the Academic Year 2019-2020.
As you might know, although a very enriching and fulfilling experience, the graduate journey can be challenging. This is where the GSU steps in. You will always find the Executive Council of GSU by your side in promoting your academic needs and healthy and eventful student life. As your Executive Director of Finance, I will do my best to continuously campaign for graduate student funding and ensure the availability of financial support for students to effectively pursue their academic goals. I am furthermore committed to improving the real and perceived value of the School of Graduate Studies in the eyes of prospective employers by working with stakeholders to pursue efforts that promote the academic, cultural and social benefits attributed to Memorial’s School of Graduate Studies.
There are numerous activities and workshops organized by the GSU all over the year and I would encourage you to actively take part in these to get the most out of student life here at MUN. Student participation coupled with a competent and engaging Executive Council is the perfect recipe to enrich the graduate student experience.
I absolutely love meeting new people so feel free to catch me anytime in room GH-2002 or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org! I would be glad to hear your suggestions and any improvements you wish to propose. I am excited to take this opportunity to make the graduate student experience amazing and inclusive for everyone!
Executive Director of Finance
