As a strong advocate for student rights, Abhineet is dedicated to promoting accessibility, affordability, and anti-oppression policies for all students. In addition, he is passionate about advocating for international student rights and ensuring that students’ needs are met at all levels of government.
Under Abhineet’s leadership, the USSU has built strong relationships with municipal, federal, and provincial governments to address students’ needs and support the province’s growth. His work has significantly enhanced student experiences at the University of Saskatchewan. His commitment to advocating for student rights and promoting equity in education reflects his character and values. When I’m not representing students, I enjoy painting and photography and visiting Louis’ as much as possible. You must try the Buffalo Chicken Poutine.
