The Carleton University Senate is calling for nominations for undergraduate and graduate students to serve on a variety of Senate Standing Committees. The deadline to submit your nomination is March 31, 2024. Students will serve for a one-year term from July 1, 2024, to June 30, 2025. Once the deadline for nominations has passed, positions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, provided the nominee meets eligibility requirements.
