Call for graduate/professional student nominations to the Board of Governors

Board of Governors of York University
Board of Governors of York University

The Student Senator Caucus (SSC) oversees nominations for student members for the Board of Governors 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 SSC is responsible for nominating those members, and in practice has done so through an election. This year, the SSC has appointed John Wu as chief returning officer and Keith Davis 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 will be accepted starting Thursday, Feb. 28 at 9 a.m. The deadline for nominations is Friday, March 8 at noon. No late or incomplete forms will be accepted.
