Justin Langan

Justin Langan is a multi-award winning LGBTQ2+ Metis student and advocate. Having been recognized as one of the Top 25 Environmentalists under 25 in Canada and a National Champion of Mental Health for Youth, Justin has been involved in youth leadership and teamwork for years. Justin sits on Provincial Youth Advisory Committee and the Northwest Youth Advisory Committee, the Manitoba Association of Friendship Centers’ Youth Engagement Committee, Arts Faculty Council, etc.

He understands the importance of strong independent leadership, but most of all, the ability to work together towards a common goal. 

Justin will help to establish a revised communications plan so ASBC can be more effective in connecting with Arts students, on campus and off. Increasing engagement and participation in strengthening the voices of Arts students is essential to a strong ASBC. 

Transparency for any democratically elected student is pivotal to a strong student body. Making ASBC a council of transparency and approachability is extremely important. Communities want to see real action and authentic support and Justin will help to make these community ideas a reality.

Fardeen zareef (uplift asbc)

Hello Arts students!

My name is Fardeen, I am a third year Economics and Society student and I am running to be your next President of ASBC. I am currently your Co-Director of Communications for ASBC and in this role,  I firsthand got to experience and understand what our students want and expect from their student body and as an international student and a person of colour, I identify with the gap in communication and engagement for marginalized students and I am aware of the importance and need to provide support for our students especially as we tackle these unprecedented times together. If elected as your President of ASBC, I want to bring a new change in the culture of the student body by heavily investing our resources on community engagement, advocate extensively for inclusivity and vocalize to the maximum extent in all university levels for the importance of mental health and stress relief initiatives so that Arts student get the student body that they truly deserve.
