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.

Program Assembly Delegates

Program Assembly Delegates consist of one representative for each Program in the Faculty of Graduate Studies with the term running from September 1 through August 31 of the following year, and must be available to attend at least once (1) during the winter term but may meet up to twice (2) per term, for a total of six (6) times per year.  A comprehensive list of the faculty programs at Brock University can be found here.

Program Delegates are individuals responsible for being a liaison between the GSA Executive and the graduate students in their programs. As representatives from within their own Programs, Delegates will liaise between the GSA and their own program and represent students by using their voice in the GSA. This relationship provides an opportunity to bring issues or concerns from within programs to the attention of the GSA and the larger graduate community.
