Structure

The Science Society is broken into three main bodies:

  • the Science undergraduates,
  • the Executive, and
  • the Board of Directors.

The Executive is responsible for representing the science students and Society across the University of Waterloo and to ensure policies and decisions of the Board of Directors and the voices of the students are addressed. The Board of Directors serves to oversee the Executive, approves the use of student money, enacts policies to more effectively run the organisation, and represents you most directly through your Departmental Club.
