In November 2013, the Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union (SUSK) secured funding through the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) Ukrainian Dragons competition for several initiatives, including the creation of a full-time National Coordinator position based in Ottawa, Ontario, in order to better consolidate and further professionalize our activities.
Based in Ottawa, Ontario, the SUSK National Coordinator works alongside UCC staff at the UCC National Office to help SUSK reach, support, and empower more young Ukrainian Canadians while enhancing the operational capacity of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.
Connor Moen recently completed his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science at the University of Saskatchewan and joined the UCC staff in Ottawa on September 6, 2016. Connor comes from a wealth of experience in Ukrainian Student Organization (USO) development, helping revive his club at the University of Saskatchewan in 2011 and eventually leading its growth into becoming one of the largest USOs across the country. Connor took this experience and joined the SUSK National Executive in 2015 as Project Director, where he spearheaded the execution of the 2016 Annual SUSK Congress (‘SUSKatoon‘).
