Student Representatives Needed for Senate Committees

Reading Time: < 1 minute

UNB Saint John’s campus is currently seeking students to fill vacancies on the student senate’s standing committees.

“This is a great way for the university to get different perspectives from students,” says incoming SRC President Kenya Plut, “and also a great way for students to have their opinions heard!”

The senate are currently seeking a total of 15 students to serve as either members or alternates. Committees seeking students include Academic Planning & Resources, Admissions, Curriculum, Teaching Excellence & Policy, Academic Policies & Procedures, Information Services & Systems, Non-Credit Curriculum, and Student Life & Support Services.

Plut notes that there is not a big time commitment attached to serving on these committees.

“There are generally two or three meetings during the year,” Plut says. “The term of office for each student representative is one year, beginning on July 1, 2017. The alternate will be called upon if the primary student cannot attend the meeting.”

Plut hopes the senate positions are filled before April 30. In order to be considered, students must e-mail Plut at A nominating committee will then vote to confirm or reject the candidate.

More information on each committee as well as meeting information can be found here.
