General Faculties Council Undergraduate Representative
The General Faculties Council is one of the main governing bodies of the University. So being a student in this body is a huge deal.
Senate Undergraduate Representative

Faculty Association Executive Positions
Faculty Associations are key student servants and representatives. They are a group of elected student volunteers who advocate in behalf of the students they represent, provide services, plan events and make sure that students have the best experience possible within the undergraduate program that they have. There are various positions in each of the Executive Board of these Faculty Associations that all help in achieving the goals that these groups pursue for their students.
Want to be one of them? Contact your Faculty Association about the timelines for the nominations and elections in your faculty.
