The voice advocating for the academic interests of over 15,000 SAIT students is your Vice-President Academic, Alysson Torres-Gillett.  Alysson is a graduate from the school of ICT and a current student in the School of Business. While pursuing her diploma in New Media Production and Design, Alysson sat on the Board of Directors for two consecutive years. After earning her diploma in 2016 Alysson returned to SAIT as a Business Student and became a member of SAIT’s Academic Council, an experience that gave a deeper understanding of SAIT’s academic world and motivated her to run as SAITSA’s Vice-President Academic.
