Science Student Caucus

The role of the Science Student Caucus (SSC) is to represent, and be the voice of, students at the Faculty of Science Council and its subcommittees.  As well, two members of SSC represent Science students in York's Senate.

There are twenty undergraduate and five graduate (at least one from each graduate program) members of Caucus.

Undergraduate students registered in the Faculty of Science are eligible to be members of SSC.

Graduate students registered in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Statistics, Physics and Astronomy, and Science and Technology (one from each program) are eligible to be members of SSC.


We will be holding elections for the undergraduate representatives between Sept 30-Oct 2 via Evote.

Check out the Candidates.
