Program representatives

Program representatives are responsible for being a liaison between the GSA executive and the graduate students in their programs. Sitting on the GSA Board (Council) and 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 (Council) and the larger graduate community.  You can view the role of the program representative and a schedule of this year’s meetings.  If you are interested, please check the list below to see if your program requires a representative and if so, complete the application form (available in August) and submit to the GSA Office (MC C302) or gsaoffice@brocku.ca.
