The Alumni Advisory Board contributes to the development of the institutional alumni engagement strategy and endorses and embraces the same long-term strategic directions shared by the university and the Alumni Relations Office, specifically:
- Building a strong sense of community amongst alumni and between alumni and the university
- Contributing to enhance the reputation of the university
- Expanding alumni engagement with alumni and with current and future students
- Supporting and celebrating alumni philanthropy
The Board acts on behalf of and in support to the Alumni Association.
Senate provides a voice to graduates, the community at large and key stakeholders in university affairs. It is part of the tricameral governance structure at USask (including the Board of Governors and University Council) and is composed of 116 members, including key stakeholders across the university and community-at-large.
What are the responsibilities of the Senate?
The senate is the university’s window on the province and the province’s window on the university. Under The University of Saskatchewan Act, 1995, Senate is responsible for:
- Approving admission requirements and quotas (on the recommendation of council);
- Recommendations regarding the establishment or disestablishment of any college, school, or department;
- Appointing examiners for and making bylaws respecting the conduct of examinations for professional societies;
- The granting of honorary degrees; and
- Non-academic student discipline
