Omkar Singh: Vice President of Business and Law 2020/21
Hello, my name is Omkar I am your Vice President of Business and Law this year, and am currently studying: Master of Science in International Business. What does being a Vice President mean? Well it means I am employed full-time at the Students' Union to represent your voice at ARU. I feedback your praise, concerns and improvments at Univeristy meetings, directly to the VC of ARU, in your Faculty Desision making boards and more. I also run key campaigns that I pitched to you during last years Election.
What made me stand to be an Officer? I thought to spot relevant positive changes through advocating cause or policies which can enhance student life in university and being an officer will give me the best platform to do so. In five years time I hope to be an Entrepreneur and social activist, “making world a better place to live”.
What are your campaigns/ what would you like to achieve for students this year?
This year is going to be quite exciting with different opportunities and unique challenges. I would like to work on crucial student service like well-being, student engagement with university and faculty. Representation of the students in the best possible manner also tops my super priority list. Apart from this I would like work on projects for creating and nurturing entrepreneurial environment inside the university.
Why are you passionate about this project idea?
Student-faculty engagement, I’ am inclined towards bringing transparency among the two because the more students get opportunity to interact with their respective course faculty, the higher the chances of best outcomes. I’ am passionate about the other project i.e. entrepreneurial environment as it not only evolve students into prospect entrepreneurs but also it may give birth to new unique ideas.
