Vacancy: Represent your peers
In the spring of each year, Red Deer College students elect the following year’s Students' Association Executive Council — SA President, Vice President Operations, Vice President Student Life and Vice President College Affairs. While each position has separate responsibilities, they work together to ensure all students at RDC are represented fairly and equally.
The position of Vice President College Affairs is currently vacant which means there will be a bi-election in October to fill this position. Nominations open at the conclusion of the Students' Association Fall General Meeting.
Perhaps you are the next Vice President College Affairs.
What does the VP College Affairs do?
The VP College Affairs assists students with academic and non-academic appeals. They also provide feedback on proposed curriculum and policy changes. In addition, they work to resolve issues that students are facing at Red Deer College.
The VP College Affairs must take a maximum of 15 academic credits per term. The VP College Affairs must maintain a minimum of 20 office hours during the Students’ Association’s regular business hours. They also attend events which are outside of their standard office hours.
To qualify to run in the bi-election for the position of VP College Affairs, a student must be enrolled as a Red Deer College student — Collaborative students may not stand as candidates for the position of VP College Affairs — and have achieved a GPA of at least 2.0 during the College’s most recent Winter or Spring term. Individuals who have previously served two elected terms as an Association Executive are not eligible unless four years have elapsed since serving their second elected term.
