Students can vote in Board of Governors elections starting March 2

Ryerson’s Board of Governors is holding elections for seven of its 24 member positions next week, including three student positions.

Forget the student union, along with the Senate, the Board of Governors is the highest governing authority for the university. It’s responsible for the governance of the university, its property, revenue and all of its business and affairs. It sets strategy, manages risk and manages the university’s finances, according to the university’s website.

The student positions are one-year terms, and eight students have tossed their names in the ring.

David Kwok, Ganesh Thavarajah and Jessica Machado comprise the UR Choice slate.

UR Vision’s team is represented by Hannah Van Dyk, Cormac McGee and Michael Zelma.

Two independent candidates round out the eight who are running: Dwayne Anderson and Mikhail Morozov.

Students can vote online at from March 2-5.

The Board of Governors is comprised of 24 members according to Ryerson’s website. Elections for four positions for faculty and administrative members are running alongside student elections.

The remaining Board of Governors members include Ryerson’s president, chancellor, and vice-chancellor, as well as appointed external members and nine members appointed by the government of Ontario.

Here are the students running:
