The University of Toronto Students’ Union announced the resignation of its VP external, Lucinda Qu, due to reasons described as “personal”.
In the statement, released on October 29, UTSU states that Qu’s resignation was accepted in their board meeting on October 19.
“Lucinda was an important member of the executive team,” read the statement. “She led the UTSU in supporting the members of UNITE HERE Local 75, and was one of the few student leaders to do so.”
UTSU has opened the position for anyone to apply until November 25. The nominees are then interviewed by the Nominating Committee, who will forward at least two applicants to the board to decide.
UTSU’s president Jasmine Wong-Denike did not respond to The Medium’s request for comment.
