I hope the new term is treating you well so far. As those papers start up, remember that the AUS Essay Centre opens for drop-in hours and appointments next week!
In addition to working with our lovely Essay Centre Coordinators, a big part of my portfolio involves overseeing academic-related committees of the AUS. Excitingly, two of these are currently in-need of members-at-large:
The AUS–Library Partnership Committee
Did you know that each year the AUS gives almost $100 000 to the McLennan-Redpath Library for capital improvements? This money has gone towards new seating areas, presentation technology in group study rooms, collection additions and more. The AUS-Library Partnership Committee will work collaboratively on infrastructure improvement proposals as well as promoting regular dialogue between the Library’s management and undergraduate students. The time commitment is approximately 1 meeting every 2 weeks.
If interested, please send a recent CV, along with a 150-200 word paragraph outlining your interest and experience, to the AUS VP Academic at email@example.com. The deadline to apply has been extended to Friday, September 26th at 5pm.
The Arts Student Employment Fund Committee
The AUS is looking for a member-at-large to sit on the Arts Student Employment Fund Committee! This committee will be responsible for reviewing funding applications and making allocations towards on-campus employment opportunities for Arts students. In the past, this has included positions with Arts OASIS, CaPS, SEDE, and the Arts Internship Office. The time commitment is 1-2 meetings per term. If interested, please send a recent CV, along with a 150-200 word paragraph outlining your interest and experience, to the AUS VP Academic at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to apply is Monday, September 29th at 5pm.
Please feel free to email me with any questions. I hope to hear from you soon!
