GSA Council Schedule
Friday April 12, 4:00 PM (Senate Room, 608 Robertson Hall)
What is Council?
How can I get involved?
Do you want to represent your department at GSA council? To become a councillor, a nomination form needs to be completed. See the Council Nomination Forms section here.
If there are more candidates than seats for any department, then the students of that department hold an election to choose their representative on council.
If you would like to attend a GSA Council meeting to see what it's all about, consult the schedule on this page for dates and locations. Observers may be present for all business (with the exception of the rare times when council goes "in camera") and may speak as well, though they may not vote.
For more information contact the VP Operations or stop by the GSA office.
Why is it important to get involved?
• Sitting on the GSA Council provides great experience – learn how a non-profit democratic organization works. Councillors get to know how the university works and what graduate students at other universities are up to.
• It's fun – Council is a great way to meet people across disciplines and get involved in the graduate student community at Carleton.
