Undergraduate Board of Governors Representative

Brent Kelly

The Board of Governors (BoG) is the ultimate governing and decision making body on campus. Among many other things, it determines tuition fees, manages University property and finances, and is responsible for the overall strategic direction of the University.

The Undergraduate Board of Governors Representative is elected directly by students to serve as a voice for the undergraduate body. They hold one of the 21 voting seats on the board, along with the University President and the Chancellor, the SU and GSA Presidents, academic and non-academic staff representatives, alumni representatives and members of the public appointed by the provincial government. The BoG Rep is also a voting member of Students' Council and General Faculties Council (GFC).

Brent is entering the final year of his undergraduate degree in political science and international studies here at the University of Alberta. Since he first arrived in Edmonton from his hometown of Calgary, he has been very involved both on and off campus. He has served on the executive of a number of student groups, in roles including president, vice-president, and treasurer. He has also served as an Arts Councilor in the Students’ Union. He has served on the governing boards of a number of organizations, including the Alberta Public Interest Research Group, the First Alberta Campus Radio Association, and the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights. He has also founded or co- founded two science education and advocacy organizations, serving as chairman of the board for one of them. Brent is passionate about grassroots community organizing, and considers the advancement of social justice one of his key interests.
