How SSMU Works

SSMU might seem like a complicated organization, if only because it performs so many different functions for students, but it’s no more complicated than any other form of government. Elected officials at SSMU generally serve one-year terms, and elections are held around March of every year. How much SSMU will accomplish depends on YOU. You must vote and elect your representatives. You can take the responsibility of holding them accountable.
