The MSU is currently hiring five Associate Vice-Presidents (AVPs), each chairing a standing committee of the Student Representative Assembly (SRA) and any directly related ad-hoc committees of the SRA. The AVPs will determine the direction of their committee in a way that suits the role of the committee and the interests of the assembly, and work closely with the recently elected Vice-Presidents throughout their 2020/2021 term. All MSU members are eligible to apply. Applications for these paid positions are accepted until March 1, 2020 at 11:59 pm. Click here to view all available jobs.

Angel Huang highlights that being AVP Provincial and Federal Affairs has provided “the opportunity to engage with MPPs at lobbying meetings, draft policy advice with OUSA and UCRU, chair the MSU Provincial and Federal Affairs committee, and organize initiatives like the 2019 federal election information campaign, MacVotes.”

Graeme Noble, AVP Internal Governance adds, “as AVP Internal Governance, you have the opportunity to unite students and staff to create concrete changes etched into official documentation.”

The positions of AVPs function both logistically and politically in the MSU. The standing committees chaired by AVPs all have a different focus, and each are comprised of  SRA members and MSU members (undergraduate students taking 18 or more units). They are responsible for reporting directly to the Board of Directors, working on projects falling under a Vice-President’s portfolio, and providing feedback and advice. In addition, the role of an AVP involves attending meetings that are relevant to their portfolio as advised by the relevant Vice-President.

The available Associate Vice-President positions are with Services, University Affairs, Internal Governance, Provincial & Federal Affairs, and Municipal Affairs.
