Senator profile: Allan Adam

Allan Adam (BA'12) wants to ensure the University of Saskatchewan understands what it means to be a student coming to campus from Saskatchewan's north, and he's a strong advocate for Dené issues.

Though the challenges faced by these students are many, Adam said that meeting them head on could be as simple as exploring the use of English as an additional language programs.

"It's not only people coming into Canada, immigrants and so forth," he said. "A lot of our students that come out of the northern program, English is not their first language."

Adam is lobbying for his community through his position with the U of S senate, where he sits on the executive committee. He is also the elected member for district 10, which covers northeast Saskatchewan and includes communities such as Stony Rapids and Sandy Bay.
