Dave Konrad Board of Governors Representative

Dave Konrad is the 2021-2022 Undergraduate Representative for the University of Alberta’s Board of Governors. He is in his fourth year of Human Dimensions of Environmental Management in the Faculty of ALES, with his eye on international diplomacy where he will develop cooperative policies with countries to bring peace in places of violence. Dave was the Board of Governors Representative last year, and before that was involved in student governance for a year and a half, serving as a Councillor on the Students’ Union Council and as Vice-President of ALES’ Faculty Association, FAUnA, looking to support vulnerable communities and deescalate ideologically polarized situations. Other student groups he has spent time in as a member or leader are Power to Change and the University of Alberta Powerlifting Association

Outside of UAlberta, Dave has worked during summers and some holidays for Clark Builders, a local prime contractor in the construction industry, for five years. Spending his first four years as a labourer, he stepped into a project coordination position this past summer, allowing him to utilize his organization and communication skills. He worked with a team of students from UAlberta and Queen’s University in Ontario as well, to develop a non-profit that virtually connects young people and elderly people in care homes to reduce rates of loneliness in elderly populations. He has also been part of community movements centred around environmental change and Indigenous reconciliation, noting society’s polarization around big issues and trying to push forward with careful consideration and kindness.

For fun, Dave takes photographs and does recreational videography. He also enjoys weightlifting and volleyball. He shares a lot of laughs and deep conversations with his immediate family and also enjoys building meaningful relationships with people in any circles he finds himself in.


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).
