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.

Bryan Buraga | President

Contact: president@ssmu.ca

Hey there! I'm Bryan Buraga and I'm a second year student in the Interfaculty of Arts & Science! I'm super excited to serve you in my capacity as a SSMU Senator. I will be sitting on the Subcommittee on Courses and Teaching Programs (SCTP), as well as the Enrollment and Student Affairs Advisory Committee (ESAAC). I am also the Senate Caucus Representative to the Legislative Council. My three priorities for the upcoming year include fighting for a Fall Reading Break, lobbying for more diverse ArtSci programs, and creating a mentorship program that includes both Arts and Science professors. In my free time, you can find me cooking or baking, playing the ukulele, or trying (and failing) to become fluent in French. My favourite quote is from Margaret Mead: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
