Engagement opportunities with the Student Representative Assembly
October 15, 2017 at 09:31 am
The Student Representative Assembly (SRA) is the governing body of the MSU, comprised of 31 undergraduate students elected inside each faculty by their peers, plus the four members of the Board of Directors. The SRA works to address the concerns of the undergraduate population, and aims to build a better McMaster for all students. For those interested in student politics, there are many ways to get involved with the SRA.
SRA representatives from each faculty hold office hours weekly, providing a venue for students to give feedback to their representatives, ask questions, and learn about what the representatives are planning to accomplish throughout the year. Emailing caucus leaders is also way to communicate concerns or inquires, as is contacting representatives using their respective Facebook pages. For specific office hours and the emails of caucus leaders, click here.
Students are encouraged to attend SRA meetings, which are held biweekly on Sundays at 5:00 PM in Council Chambers (Gilmour Hall 111). The meeting schedule can be accessed here. Meetings are open, public forums, and serve as an opportunity for anyone interested to learn more about the role of the assembly. One can also stay up to date by watching the live stream of the meetings, or by checking out the social media channels of the different SRA caucuses.
There will be a by-election to fill the two open seats for the Faculty of Social Sciences and the one for Kinesiology. The nomination period is from October 16 to October 20 and the campaigning period is taking place October 22 to October 26. Students from the two faculties will elect their representatives on October 25 and 26.
