The University of Calgary’s Board of Governors is the highest governing body at the university. Established under the Post-Secondary Learning Act, the Board is responsible to manage and operate the University of Calgary in accordance with its mandate as a publicly funded academic and research institution.  To make sure that student interests and perspectives are represented in Board decisions, the SU nominates two undergraduate students to serve on the Board of Governors every year: the SU President and a student-at-large elected in the SU General Election. The SU also submits reports to the Board in advance of regular Board meetings to give updates on the SU’s programs and services and issues that are important to the student body.
