CSI’s Highest Authority is our Student Board of Directors

CSI is governed by our Board of Directors comprised of current students of Conestoga College. Directors hold office for one-year terms that begin in May, but they can be re-elected for multiple terms.

BOD elections happen every winter semester

CSI hosts a general election every winter for each director position. Interested students must fill out a nomination package, be a student in good standing with a minimum 70% GPA and get 10 peer signatures in order to successfully apply.

CSI’s International Student Advisory Council

The purpose of this council is to gain the knowledge and feedback required to continuously better our International Students experience. The student members of this council provide feedback on their experiences on a variety of pertinent topics (coming to Canada, events at Conestoga, etc.) and this feedback is passed to the college. Student volunteers will also receive education on the college and their Canadian experience, and will receive team bonding opportunities.
