On the one hand, the positions of Faculty Representative and Constituency Representative are slightly less involved. The position Faculty Representative allows a student to represent their faculty, such as Business Administration and Medicine. Constituency Representative applicants are for positions that involve broader groups of Memorial students, such as First Year Students and Indigenous Students representatives. Both of these positions are open to anyone who with to apply. These positions require attending weekly meetings and working closely with your Faculty or Constituency group.
On the other hand, there are Executive Director positions. These positions require much more dedication and responsibility. The position involves a 35 hour work week, where representatives must work closely with various committees. These positions also require that the candidates only take 3 courses per semester in the Spring, Fall, and Winter.
