How do I participate in University Governance at the University of Alberta?

Judicial Student - Panelist

All appeal panel members need to be able to objectively hear submissions from both parties to an appeal, analyze and weigh evidence and come to a reasonable decision based on the evidence.

Annually each spring, and as vacancies arise throughout the year, the GFC Nominating Committee (NC) works to replenish vacant panel positions on its university appeal bodies.
