Welcome to GovWeek!

GovWeek 2017

Good governance doesn’t happen on its own. Every student, community, and organization has a unique perspective that can help shape their campus experience.

That’s why the Students’ Union hosted the inaugural GovWeek in 2016, and why the event is being held again this year.

A celebration of governance at the University of Alberta, GovWeek will be held from September 18 to 22, and will feature a wide variety of workshops and events, empowering students with the knowledge and tools to make an impact on campus.

Want to learn more about the way decisions are made on campus? Interested in how University governance affects students? Considering running in the fall by-elections, or gearing up for a spring election campaign? Curious about how student groups, faculty associations or students’ council operate? These topics and more will be covered in sessions led by campus-based groups, governance experts, and passionate students.

GovWeek is the ultimate way for students to get their foot in the door of governance, and everyone is invited.
