About Student Representatives:
CASG Representatives sit on the board responsible for the academic requirements of their Major and the Faculty board above it. These boards are comprised of all Faculty within the teaching unit, or Faculty as well as the students elected in CASG elections. Students elected have a full voice and an equal vote on these boards.
CASG Representatives also sit on Carleton Academic Student Government Council, the highest decision-making body of CASG. At these meetings they discuss issues that affect the entire student body and make proposals to the Senate of Carleton.
CASG Representatives also are the only students eligible to serve on Carleton’s Senate as Student Senators, and run for Student Government Coordinator/other executive positions within the Academic Student Government.
The normal time-commitment is about two hours a week for CASG Representatives. These positions are volunteer positions and not paid.
Number of positions: There are multiple Carleton Academic Student Government Representative (CASG Representatives) for each major. The number of CASG Representatives depends on the department, but is usually at least two representatives per major. If you would like to know the number of positions for your major please contact the CEO.
