Good afternoon Liz,
I find the appointment of student senators by the SFUO problematic and inconsistent with the by-laws. The Senate By-law on Composition of the Senate states that “one full-time student elected by his peers in each of the Faculties of the University of Ottawa and one student for the two sections in Law; the method of election and the period of mandate to be determined by resolution of the Senate.” As such, the Senate representatives should be elected by students of the respective faculty.
