Senators

Every undergraduate student is represented by a Senator based on their faculty affiliation. The Senators main role is to represent undergraduate students at the McGill Senate. Senators can relay their constituents’ concern to the McGill Senate, McGill Admin, the Faculty Association, or University-level committees.

To send an email to all Senators, direct your message to senators@ssmu.ca. Note that since the SSMU President and VP University Affairs are also senators, emails sent to this address will also reach them.
