Results for Ryerson’s Board of Governors and Senate elections are in

Voting for the Board of Governors and Senate elections has been happening online this week and today, the results are in.

On the Board of Governors, the three student representatives are the re-elected Victoria Morton and her fellow team Motion members, Navnidh (Nav) Marwah and Neal Muthreja. Morton received 780 votes, Marwah received 662 votes and Muthreja received 638 votes for a total of 2,080 of the 3,878 votes, cast with a participation rate of 4.4 per cent.

The elected teaching faculty candidates are Lamya Amleh and Catherine Ellis. The elected administrative staff candidate is Shira Gellman. They will serve on the Board of Governors for a term of two years.

For the Senate, the four student at-large representatives are Razi Syed (572 votes), Chelsea Davenport (570 votes), Salman Faruqi (468 votes) and Najam Ul Saqib (454 votes). There were 4,759 votes cast with a participation rate of 4.9 per cent.

The Faculty of Community Services seat goes to Fariah Muto, while Tanzina Nowshin will represent the Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science. Rebecca Dias will represent the Faculty of Science, Brian Baum is the representative for Ted Rogers School of Management and Lauren Emberson will represent the Faculty of Communication and Design. No election was required for the Faculty of Arts seat; Vajdaan Tanveer claimed the seat with no opposition after nominations for Senate student candidates closed last month.

The two Yeates School of Graduate Studies representatives are Eno Hysi with 51 votes and Roya Rezaee with 47 votes.

The Board of Governors is in charge of the financial well-being of Ryerson and is involved in its budgeting process. The Senate oversees academic issues such as cases of academic misconduct, academic standing and grade appeals.

The student candidates will start their term in September 2017 and will each hold their respective positions for the full year.
