posted on Oct. 26: Two new students join Board of Governors


A fourth-year electrical engineering & management student has won the undergraduate seat on the Board of Governors.

Ali Rohani will serve on the Board for a two-year term from November 2001 to October 2003.

Rohani was one of 10 candidates vying for the undergraduate seat in an election that saw the largest number of candidates fielded in 10 years. The online election ran from Oct. 10 to Oct. 12.

As well, the Board of Governors election broke another record, with the highest voter turnout ever – 413 votes were cast.

Sa'ad Salim, of the medical science program, will represent graduate students on the Board from November 2001 to October 2003.

The previously scheduled election for this seat was cancelled, when the second graduate candidate withdrew.

Rohani and Salim were also appointed to the Board's finance and audit committees.
