Harman Rathore graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 2015. He began his career at UFV as an international student, and even had a hand in starting UFV’s first Cricket Club in 2014.
Since then, Rathore has become a regular friendly face on campus, managing the RBC on Campus where students can seek financial literacy and career advice from staff.
“Advisors create value for students, enhancing their experience on campus and providing knowledge they need,” says Rathore. “A ‘more-than-money’ approach focuses on working with UFV to support, engage, and empower students through their time in university, preparing them for current and future success in our community.”
Rathore has worked in banking since graduation. He brings with him a desire to build community through his work and volunteer efforts. He aims to use his background in banking and his relationships with the community for the benefit of the university and its alumni.
“In my current role as the Manager of RBC On-Campus at UFV, I have developed valuable relationships with the student body, as well as with clubs and associations, both of which coherently tie in with one of the purposes of UFV Alumni Association (UFVAA)” says Rathore. “I am thrilled to bring my skills including visionary leadership, strategic decision making, financial planning, business development and relationship management to the UFVAA board.”
“We are so thrilled to welcome Harman Rathore to the UFV Alumni Association Board of Directors, we know he will make strong, long-lasting contributions,” says UFVAA Executive Director Whitney Fordham. “His unique perspective and understanding of the international student experience will play a crucial role in fostering a stronger sense of belonging and connectivity within the UFV alumni community.”
Rathore was welcomed at the September 27 regular meeting of the Board. The UFV Alumni Association’s volunteer board is dedicated to the Association’s purpose of “fostering lifelong relationships between alumni and the University and the Fraser Valley through advocacy, support, service and communication”.
