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 University Examinations Committee is responsible for issuing special exceptions for exams. We are looking for undergraduate students to sit on the committee alongside administrators to represent the student perspective.

Specifically, the committee is responsible for four things:

  1. Granting retroactive discontinues for circumstances where a student was unable to write a deferred exam.
  2. Granting retroactive discontinues for circumstances where the student was unable to write a replacement exam.
  3. Granting students permission to write a supplemental exam when extraordinary circumstances arise.
  4. Granting student requests to defer examinations should they exceed the 3-deferral limit.

Eligibility: The position is open to all undergraduate students. Applicants must be available for mandatory committee meetings. Being able to elaborate a personal reason for joining the committee this an asset.

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 “University Examinations Committee – 2021” as the email subject line.
