Student Representative Roundtable

The Student Representative Roundtable (SRR) is an advisory forum to the Vice-Provost Students, with responsibility for providing input on a broad range of University policies and procedural matters (e.g. Student Code of Conduct, York election regulations, government policies). The SRR proffers advice, guidance and information to assist in the development of policies, procedures and action plans promoting student engagement in York’s academic and social life.

The SRR was created as a forum for dialogue and to provide advice on important issues to the Vice-Provost, Students. The Roundtable is an opportunity for student leaders, key staff, and governance members to discuss ideas and formulate solutions that improve the student experience and the quality of life on campus.

As the Terms of Reference state, it is a forum that “operates in an atmosphere of collegiality, co-operation, and respect for each member.”

Below are the monthly meeting dates. Meetings are scheduled from 5:30 –7:30 PM in the Discover York Centre, main floor lobby, Bennett Centre. A light dinner will be available at 5:00 PM.

The Roundtable operates in an atmosphere of collegiality, co-operation and respect to:

  1. Provide a forum in which members may discuss matters dealing with its mandate.
  2. Meet monthly in the Fall and Winter academic terms.
  3. Examine specific high-priority issues and develop recommendations for the Vice-Provost Students to consider advancing to the relevant University decision-making bodies.
  4. Create subcommittees to investigate specific matters and develop recommendations for the Roundtable to recommend to the Vice-Provost Students as outlined in the item above.

In addition, those members of the group who also sit on the University’s Board of Governors report on the Rountable’s activities to the Board.

The Vice-Provost Students, in consultation with the student co-chair, decides on the meeting agendas with input from members of the Roundtable and sets the times of all regularly and specially scheduled meetings.
