Eligibility

The following are the requirements for students, faculty, and staff to be eligible to serve as a representative on the Board of Governors and Senate. Nominators must be members of the group associated with the position.

In accordance with the Board of Governors bylaws, Senate bylaws, the UFV Election procedures, and the University Act of BC, the following eligibility criteria must be met in order to serve in an elected position as a student representative on the Board or Senate:

  • Be a UFV student registered in at least one credit course in the semester in which a vacancy arises and, if elected, must continue to meet this criterion throughout the term in order to retain the position.
  • Be a student in good academic standing, as defined by the University Continuance policy and, if elected, must continue to meet this criterion throughout the term in order to retain the position.
  • For the purpose of Board elections, student nominees and student nominators must be members of the Student Union Society, which means students have paid SUS fees.
  • Five nominators, who are enrolled in at least one credit course at UFV and who are entitled to vote in the election, are required. If nominators cannot be identified, the nomination will not be valid.


Faculty must be a permanent or continuing instructor, lecturer, assistant professor, associate professor, professor, or in an equivalent position designated by the Senate.


Staff must be employed on a permanent or continuing contract with UFV, not an officer of the university, nor a faculty member.
