Rowan Ley Board of Governors Representative

Rowan is a University of Alberta student who is lucky to study his passions for politics and history every day in the classroom. A lifelong Edmontonian, he is in his third year of a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Political Science and a minor in History or Economics. He got involved in governance as the governance coordinator for the Arts faculty association, and has been a member of Students' Council since May 2018. Rowan has worked in the Legislature as a Page, and in the office of the Minister of Agriculture and Forestry and the Premier's Office for summer internships.

He is a dedicated member of the debate club, having competed as far away as South Africa, and the karate club, which he has been a member of for eleven years. When not on campus, he can be found playing intramural ultimate frisbee and walking his puppy.


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).
