Board Members / Faculty Representatives

Board Members of the Graduate Students’ Association govern as directors for the GSA but are selected to represent their specific faculty, and are jointly responsible for governing the organization as well as serving as liaisons between the GSA executive and the graduate students in their faculty. Sitting on the GSA Board of Directors and various committees, they represent the GSA within their faculty and represent students by using their vote in the GSA .  This is an opportunity to bring issues or concerns from their faculty to the attention of the Board of Directors, the Executive Committee and the larger graduate community.  You must be a current registered Brock graduate student to sit on the Board of Directors.   You can find a copy of the Role and Responsibilities of a Board Member, as well a schedule of meeting dates below.
