Job Details and Description

Description: The SUB Capital Plan Task Force will be composed of UASU Student Councillors, UASU Executives, three (3) student-at-larges and University Senior Administration. The Task Force will work to create an in-depth strategy to tackle on-campus deferred maintenance and bring a suite of recommendations to bring to Studentsí Council for approval.

The University faces a large and growing issue of deferred maintenance on campus. Within 5
years, the total deferred maintenance bill of the University will be over $1 billion dollars. How does this show up to the average student? It shows up as things such as floods, heating or
power loss in a building, equipment failures, non-functioning toilets, out-of-service elevators, and decrepit fixtures and furnishings. The large backlog of deferred maintenance also means
that it is difficult for the University to address urgent and emergent issues regarding
accessibility, safety, and security.

Meetings will be bi-weekly, to be determined once the whole task force is filled.
Qualifications: Must be registered as an undergraduate student at the University of Alberta. Must have an interest in student issues at the U of A, and a desire to represent the best interests of students.

An understanding of university governance is an asset.
Work Hours: Afternoon, Evening
