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 Student Senator Caucus is responsible for nominating those members, and in practice has done so through an election.

This year, the SSC has appointed Issa Abdi Jamaa as chief returning officer and Dylan Gruspier 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 Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 9 a.m. The extended deadline for nominations is March 12 at 12 p.m. No late or incomplete forms will be accepted.
