Senator profile: Jim Pulfer

To Jim Pulfer (BA'64, MSc'68), the University of Saskatchewan Senate is all about giving the institution and its affiliates a clearer perspective of each other.

Since his election to senate in 2012, he has come to see it as the connecting thread between the U of S and the public across the province. The goal, he said, is for senate to inform each group about the other's interests.

"It's supposed to be the window on the community, and the community's window on the university. It's a two-way street," Pulfer said.

Senate is a governing body made up of representatives from the U of S both past and current, including students, past and current chancellors, the university president, vice-presidents, deans, elected members of our alumni representing areas across Saskatchewan and around the world, representatives of organizations with a connection to the university such as professional governing bodies, and the minister and deputy minister of advanced education.
