We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. We pay our respect to the First Nations and Métis ancestors of our gathering place and reaffirm our relationship with one another.

The COVID-19 pandemic (updates are available here) has meant that we are moving to alternative ways of accomplishing the core governance functions that are so important for our university. Most immediately, we will not be able to conduct meetings in person, including the General Academic Assembly (GAA) annual meeting.

The University of Saskatchewan Act, 1995, directs that the GAA will meet annually allowing the president to present a report respecting the state of the university and any other matters that the president considers appropriate.

Voting results will be posted on this webpage.
