The Mathematics, Actuarial and Statistics Student Association (MASSA) is a student-run association representing all undergraduate students studying in any mathematics, actuarial or statistics program offered at Concordia University. We are a Member Association under the Arts and Science Federation of Associations (ASFA), which represents all Concordia undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Science. MASSA strives to enhance our student body's university experience by providing a variety of services, such as a tutoring pool and a job bank catered towards students in the department, and by organizing academic and social events that bring everyone together outside of the classroom.
MASSA’s executive team is made up of one President and six Vice Presidents, who are elected during the Member Association elections in April or in January if there are any open positions. In addition to executives, MASSA is also made up of committee members. A committee is a group of students who work with a MASSA executive. Committee members take on tasks associated with the role of the assigned executive (e.g. social media posting for VP Communications) and have the opportunity to learn what it takes to run an association.
Applications to join a MASSA committee usually open at the beginning of the Fall semester. Joining a committee is a great opportunity to get to know people in your program, contribute to your community, and gain valuable experience in a student association. Many MASSA executives started by joining a committee!
