Jolene Hunt

HI! My name is Jolene and I am a PhD Candidate in Economics and the VP of communications for the Economics Graduate Students Association. Graduate students exist in a unique space in between undergraduate students and faculty and require dedicated representation. I would love the opportunity to represent you and help shape the brand new RGSU. 


My priorities are centred around ensuring graduate students have a seat at the table for all relevant Ryerson academic policy discussions. I am especially aware of the fact that Ryerson graduate programs are still building their reputations and consequently require as many opportunities as possible to showcase their research. I plan to work closely with graduate student unions at other universities to learn about best practices for acquiring and allocating travel grants and other educational/ research grants and initiatives.

Disclaimer: For all of these positions you must be a current part-time or full-time graduate student at Ryerson, for at least 2 consecutive terms (Spring/Summer 2021, Fall 2021 and Winter 2022).
