The Student Senator Caucus (SSC) oversees nominations for student members for the Board of Governors of York University and makes a recommendation to them based upon the election results. The election of student governors rotates annually between undergraduate and graduate/professional students.

The Board of Governors appoints its members. The Student Senator Caucus is responsible for nominating those members, and in practice, has done so through an election. This year, the SSC has appointed Sayjon Ariyarathnam as chief returning officer and Alamgir Khandwala as deputy returning officer. Following the election results, SSC will confirm the results and recommend to the board that the candidate with the highest vote total be appointed to the board.

This year SSC is accepting nominations for graduate/professional student nominees. Nominations opened Feb. 23. The nomination deadline has been extended to Friday, March 20 at noon.
