Syeda Nudrat Zehra

Nudrat is a first-year student pursuing MI UXD and is very excited to be elected as one of the Faculty Council Representatives this year! She aims to be an active representative in ensuring a bridge between the faculty and the students. By being a vital part of the council, she is making a commitment to ease the transition for new prospective MI students and will try her best in supporting, and advocating for the students. As part of the council, it is a pleasure for her to represent a group of innovative students and is thrilled to reveal what the council has in store for the academic year.

Faculty Council Representative

These representatives attend and contribute to all MISC meetings and are each allotted one vote. The Faculty Council for the Faculty of Information normally meets once each semester and is the governing body responsible for all academic affairs of the Faculty, including determining academic policies, determining the content and requirements of the degree and diploma programs. More information about the Faculty Council can be on the Faculty of Information page on Governance, policy, & accountability.

The students elected to the position of Faculty Council Representative serve to create a student presence at the Faculty Council meetings. They are allowed to speak at meetings (and are encouraged to do so) and are each allotted one vote on the Faculty Council.

These representatives report back to the students and the MISC at the MISC meetings, allowing the greater student body and council members to understand the decision process of the Faculty as well as gather student feedback to be voice at future Faculty Council meetings. The President, Executive Vice-President and VP Academic Affairs, are automatically appointed as representatives. The other representatives are elected annually in the fall each year.
