BESSA is the undergraduate students’ association of the Faculty of Environmental Studies and is recognized by the York Federation of Students. BESSA holds regular meetings and undertakes activities of interest to BES students. These include participation in environmental actions, planning student tours and exchanges, and liaising with other student groups. BESSA is also involved in the selection of undergraduate representation on FES Council and its committees. To get involved, look for posted meetings times at the beginning of each term. Selection of students as representatives to Faculty Council, the Committee of Instruction, and the various sub-committees takes place in the early part of Fall term.
