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 2017-2018 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. There will be a Board orientation sometime over the spring/summer as well. 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.
Open seats on the TGSA Board include:
- St Mike’s
- Master of Arts
- Master of Theology
- Doctor of Ministry
- Returning Officer
The nomination period will run from March 17th to April 3rd. 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 Carla Marcoccia, TGSA’s CRO, via email at carla.marcoccia[at]mail.utoronto.ca by April 3rd at 11:59pm. Nominations (and the results of any elections, if necessary) will be ratified at the TGSA Annual General Meeting on Thursday April 20th.
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
