The Senate is an independent body of diverse community leaders and University representatives, which is valued for the role it places in successfully examining, fostering, and celebrating the achievements and excellence of the University of Alberta, resulting in an enhanced relationship with the community.

Faculty Association Executive Positions

Faculty Associations (FA) are key student servants and representatives. They are a group of elected student volunteers who advocate on behalf of the students they represent, provide services, plan events and make sure that students have the best experience possible within their undergraduate program. There are various positions in each Executive Board of each Faculty Association that provide opportunities for these groups to achieve student interests and goals.
