Hela Bakhtari has been deeply involved in both the academic and social spheres at Ryerson University. Currently, she is employed at Ryerson, as the Special Projects Lead to the RSU President, and is the Secretary on her Course Union. Hela deeply values the importance of addressing the ossification of educational institutions into homogenized spaces that often stymie counter-narratives and motility for change. She hopes to advocate on behalf of Criminology students to increase experiential learning opportunities within academia.
Hela has office hours in POD-360B on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5 pm to 6 pm.
