The Student Senator Caucus (SSC) at York University 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 nomination period has been extended until March 16 at noon.

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 Nyarai Chidemo as chief returning officer and Shawn Yuan 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 Monday, Feb. 27 at 9 a.m. The deadline for nominations is March 16 at noon. No late or incomplete forms will be accepted.
