How can I join the Student Government?
All currently enrolled students at AUBG are eligible to run for the Student Government. In order to join SG, interested students need to be elected by the student body. Elections for the Senate are held annually, at the beginning of each academic year. In case a senator’s position becomes available, the SG announces elections to fill in the position. There are 12 SG members (Senators) with a one year mandate, in accordance with the SG constitution.
Students who wish to be part of the Student Government can also apply for the position of the Student Representative, which are an essential part of the Student Government and its communication with the Administration, University committees and decision-taking in various departments. Student Representative positions are announced when needed, often at the beginning of each academic year. Each candidate goes through a process of application filling and interview with the Student Representative Selection Committee.
