Board of Directors

The CSA’s Board of Directors meets approximately every alternate Wednesday to discuss and deliberate important issues facing students and how we plan on addressing them. All of our Board meetings are open to the public.

Each Board member works under the consideration of the CSA’s welfare, image, and mandate, to defend and protect the rights and interests of students. Board members assume the fiscal and moral responsibilities inherent in being a Director of a not-for-profit corporation and must be prepared and informed; ready to participate in all major decisions made by the organization. As such, Directors have a huge influence across campus, and beyond, making decisions that affect the quality and type of campaigns (around tuition fees, anti-oppression, etc.), services, and events offered by the students’ union. In this way, Directors also help to shape and build the students’ movement!


Votes on the CSA Board of Directors are held by the 7 College Governments (appointed), 14 At-Large individuals (elected, 2 per college), and 10 student organizations (appointed).
