Vice President (Administration)
Phone: 905-525-9140 ext. 23250
Preethi Anbalagan is a fourth year B.Sc. student, with a heavy background in Earth & Environmental sciences. While she loves studying hydrological processes, she's gravitated towards the science/policy interface. She's completed co-op placements at the United Nations University and School of Interdisciplinary Sciences, working on policy-related projects and operations management.
Preethi first engaged with the MSU by volunteering for Mac Farmstand, an MSU Service that she later held various positions in, including the position of operations coordinator. Between selling local cabbages and creating produce orders, she was immersed in student politics with having been on presidential campaign teams, the student representative assembly (SRA), and the operations commissioner (in other words, Associate Vice-President of Internal Governance). One would think local produce and politics are polar opposite interests, but it's Preethi's favourite intersection. Other interests include praise-dancing to Solange and reading some Alexander McCall Smith.
Majority of Preethi's work within the Union has been within the realm of increasing representation within governing bodies and leadership positions, advocating for a safer campus and building resilience/leadership capacity. She is incredibly excited to continue this work and the efforts of those who came before her.
