ISA Elections

Since the 1970’s the International Student Association has been one of the largest and most active student groups at UMaine.  We need strong and dedicated leaders to continue this tradition.  Undergraduate students are encouraged to run for President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary, while Graduate Students are encouraged to run for Graduate Adviser. These stipulations are in accordance with UMaine Student Government policy.  In addition, the Treasurer cannot  be a member of the Student Senate.
