Our Student-led Board
The Board of Directors is composed of 14 Directors, including 11 student Directors elected at the annual USU Elections, two Senate-appointed Directors and the Immediate Past President.
Meetings of the Board of Directors are where the operational and strategic business of the USU is discussed. At each meeting, there is an agenda item called ‘Open Question Time’, which is an opportunity for USU Members to bring issues to the attention of the President and Board of Directors. All USU Members are welcome to attend and observe these meetings. Special meetings of the Board of Directors are conducted in accordance with the Constitution and Regulations. All meetings are hosted from in-person locations at the Camperdown campus or online.
Register of Directors' Interest
All actual, perceived, or potential conflicts of interest must be declared. A register is kept and updated by the Board Secretary at all times.
