The TST Graduate Students’ Association (TGSA) exists for the benefit of all graduate1 students at the Toronto School of Theology (TST). Whether full time or part time, all graduate students enrolled at any TST college are members of the TGSA, pay fees to the TGSA, and can nominate and elect their fellow students to the TGSA Board.

As described in the TGSA Constitution, the TGSA provides a forum for the expression of student concerns, acts as a liaison with the TST administration, and provides student representatives for TST Councils and Committees. The TGSA also encourages cooperation and community between students and faculty, promotes the social and political participation of students, and organizes opportunities for student academic and professional development.

The TGSA is recognized by the Toronto School of Theology and the University of Toronto.

[1] ‘Graduate’ students at TST are those enrolled in graduate-level research degree programs such as the Master of Arts, Master of Theology, Doctor of Ministry, Doctor of Theology, and Doctor of Philosophy. These are distinct from the second-entry post-baccalaureate professional degrees offered by TST, such as the Master of Divinity, the Master of Theological Studies, and other ‘Basic Degrees’. For more information, see section 4.3.3 of the TST Basic Degree Handbook.
