The Carleton University Senate is calling for nominations for undergraduate and graduate students to serve on a variety of Senate Standing Committees. Students will serve for a one-year term from July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024. Once the deadline for nominations (March 31, 2023) has passed, positions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, provided the nominee meets eligibility requirements.


Students may serve on Senate committees without having been previously elected to a governance position. To be eligible, all students must be in good academic standing, and undergraduate students must have completed at least 4.0 credits prior to service.
