Length of Term: September 1st, 2021 to May 31st, 2022

The CSU’s mission is to serve students, defend their rights, and act as their highest representative body at Concordia. Two things are essential: that we are beholden to our membership, and that our funds are used responsibly.

Description of the Role: The Senate is where Concordia University makes academic decisions, approves new courses, and develops rules and regulations. It has fifty-three voting members, including professors, administrators, and twelve undergraduate students. Any issue can be presented to Concordia’s top administrators and recommendations can be made to the Board of Governors. This is your opportunity to leave your mark and promote change at Concordia!

The ideal candidate will be a strong speaker with a passion for the wellbeing of Concordia students. However, we will consider applicants who are serious about overcoming anxieties and developing their public speaking skills.

Requirements: Candidates must be available on Fridays for mandatory meetings. Monthly Senate meetings are held on Friday afternoons, and bi-monthly caucus meetings are held on Friday mornings.

Eligibility: The position is open to all undergraduate students. Students must be in acceptable standing and successfully completed 9 credits in the previous academic year.

Equitable Appointing: The Concordia Student Union welcomes the contributions that individuals from traditionally marginalized communities, as outlined under the prohibited grounds for discrimination in the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, bring to our organization. Marginalized communities include racialized people and visible minorities; Indigenous people; women; 2SLGBTQIA+ people; ethnic minorities; language minorities; and people with disabilities. Applicants shall feel free to self-identify in their cover letter or application if they are a member of a marginalized community. Candidates may also feel free to include the phrase “I would like to be considered for employment equity” to be considered for employment equity without disclosing which group they are a part of.

How to Apply: Please email your cover letter and CV to appointments@csu.qc.ca with “Senate – 2021” as the email subject line.
