The TGSA Board works behind the scenes at TST to support students during their graduate studies. We do this through advocacy, liaising with TST and U of T administration, planning professional development seminars, funding travel grants for conferences, and building scholarly community through social and academic events. The Board is looking towards the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year and is looking for some new members to assist us in fulfilling our mandate and serving the graduate student community at TST.
Board membership involves attending monthly meetings and assisting with events put on by TGSA. Depending on the role, it may also involve attending external meetings within specific colleges or departments. Appointments are for a two-year term. Specific details and job descriptions can be found in TGSA’s Constitution and in our Policies and Procedures. Being a Board member is a great way to contribute to the TST community and to develop your skills in academic service and administration.
The TGSA Board is seeking nominations to fill open seats for the 2018/2019 academic year. The following seats are open for nominations: President, Vice President Academic, Treasurer, Biblical Studies, History, Knox College, Wycliffe College, and program representatives for MA, DMin, and ThM.
The nomination period will run from March 7th to 23rd. Students interested in serving on the Board should find two peers within the TST graduate student community to nominate them for one of the vacant seats. Nominations are to be submitted to Robyn Boeré, TGSA’s CRO, via email at r.boere[at]mail.utoronto.ca by March 23rd at 11:59pm. Nominations (and the results of any elections, if necessary) will be ratified at the TGSA Annual General Meeting on Wednesday April 4th.
If you have any questions about serving on the Board or about the nomination process, please reach out either to our CRO or to tgsa[at]utoronto.ca
