Arts and science students have until this Wednesday evening to apply for a position on a subcommittee of the Arts and Science Federation of Associations.
Once formed, this committee will prepare for the upcoming provincial summit on education.

VP Academic Eric Moses Gashirabake will be leading the subcommittee, which is set to be formed by two ASFA executives and five arts and science students.

The team will table questions concerning the student general strike and present them to ASFA’s member associations that were mandated at last month’s council meeting to decide democratically amongst student members the position taken by the association.

They will also help facilitate the associations’ general assemblies, according to ASFA President Caroline Bourbonnière, “to help simplify everything.”

“The subcommittee will facilitate and promote [general assemblies]. We cannot force member associations to hold them, but we’re strongly encouraging it,” said Bourbonnière.

If not enough qualified applicants are found by the Wednesday deadline, the search will be extended, explained Gashirabake.

“The short timeframe may make it difficult to find enough students, but the application process cannot be rushed,” Gashirabake added. He explained that students will be put through the interview process. Interested arts and science students can email academic@asfa.ca.
