Self-nominate now in the 2022 Student Council General Election! Students will vote March 10-14 to fill 12 available seats on Student Council and, for voters who self-identify as Indigenous, up to 13 available seats on the Indigenous Student Circle at AUSU, one of which will also be elected by the circle members to sit on Student Council.

This is the inaugural election for the Indigenous Student Circle at AUSU, made up of AU students who self-identify as Indigenous and who will represent their fellow Indigenous students to AUSU and the AU community. If you are an Indigenous student at AU and have questions about the election, please email Duncan Wojtaszek at to learn more.

You will have the support and resources you need the moment you decide to self-nominate. Interested in joining a great team of student leaders?
