Call for undergraduate student nominations to the Board of Governors

best of yu, diverse group of students at bench

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 Ryan Whiston as chief returning officer and Rose Wang 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 undergraduate student nominees. Nominations will be accepted starting Monday, Feb. 26 at 9 a.m. The deadline for nominations is Friday, March 8 at 9 a.m. No late or incomplete forms will be accepted.
