Elections


RPIRG Board of Directors nomination package

Our Board of Directors:

The RPIRG Board of Directors is composed of 8 Student Members of RPIRG. It is the decision-making body of RPIRG, which makes all major decisions regarding finances, long-term goals, long-term viability of the organization, staffing, and funding application approval – all using concensus-based decision making principles.

RPIRG board members meet 1-2 times per month, sit on committees which report to the board on matters like staff relations, budgets, events, and funding, and help to run and promote RPIRG events.

Every spring, students vote for their Board of Directors in conjunction with other student group elections. All Student Members of RPIRG who are in good standing will be able to run for a seat on the RPIRG Board of Directors. Board terms are 2 years, but you can run for up to 2 terms. New board members receive a full orientation, and are given opportunities and resources throughout the year to pursue professional development training related to their role.

Why Run for the Board of Directors?

Being on the RPIRG Board of Directors has its perks!

  • Networking with other justice-minded people on the UofR Campus
  • Becoming a change-maker for social and environmental justice
  • Gaining real-world experience in your areas of interest through committee involvement
  • Building your experience as a community leader
  • Accessing training opportunities and funds to develop your skills as an active global citizen!
