Graduate Student Council
The Graduate Student Council (GSC) is a platform where graduate students' concerns are heard by program representatives. The council ensures that the university is aware of the concerns of graduate students and advocates for resolutions and changes where applicable. The GSC also manages the graduate student service under the Student Association and co-ordinates a number of events for graduate students, including the Graduate Student Research Conference, coffee hours, trivia nights and orientation activities.
The council consists of five executive members: President; Vice-President, Internal; Vice-President, External; Vice-President, Finance; and Secretary. The remaining council is comprised of one representative for every 25 students from each faculty (to a maximum of three students per graduate program). Each graduate program submits their representatives, who then elect to fill the executive positions. A general election is held for the position of GSC President.
Joining the GSC will help add soft skills to your resumé, and it's also a great way to make a difference in the graduate studies community.
