Alberta's Post Secondary Learning Act establishes the Board’s membership, which consists of a Chair selected from among the Public members, members from the external community (known as External or Public Members), members of the academic staff (nominated by GFC and AUArts FA respectively), members of the student body (nominated by the AUArts SA) and a member of the non-academic staff union (nominated by AUPE). AUArts elected and appointed members are known as Internal Members of the Board of Governors.
