SFU board of governors student representative-elect, Clement Apaak, made history last month when he became the first international student ever to be elected to a university board in British Columbia. Apaak's election, following an online vote by SFU students, was made possible by a change last year to the B.C. University Act — one he spent five years lobbying for — allowing international students to be university board members. "It was long overdue," says the Ghanaian-born archaeology instructor and PhD student who is a former SFU senator and student society president, as well as the founder of Canadian Students for Darfur and host of campus radio CJSF's African Connection. Apaak begins his one-year term June 1, as does his fellow student-elected board member Derrick Harder.
