Thomas Leishner

As Science’s Student Engagement Coordinator, my job is to help students feel at home at SFU. I focus on creating and supporting community-building events and programs such as Welcome Day and peer mentorship. I also help students get involved in extra-curricular activities; training and supervising student volunteers, and guiding and supporting our student unions and clubs. Before joining SFU, I spent a number of years teaching in classroom and museum settings and completed a Master of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. I'm a firm believer that your time at SFU should be academically and socially fulfilling.

Aiden Wickey

As the new Faculty of Science Student Success Coordinator, I’m here to help students achieve academic success and find their place in the Faculty. This includes supporting students’ academic goals and plans to helping students navigate the tension between academic achievement and everyday life.  I am also a proud alumnus of SFU Science -  I majored in Kinesiology (Ergonomics and Human Factors concentration) and completed five co-op work terms during my degree.
