Hi everyone, I hope you are well!
First off, apologies for the delay in updating our website. It has been a crazy first few months of the semester. I hope you all had a restful reading week and are settling into your routines.
We started off the academic year with the Toronto School of Theology Orientation for our new incoming students. Attached below you can find the ‘TGSA Orientation Package 2020/21’ that was handed out to all those who attended. Everything you need to know about TGSA can be found in the orientation package (NB: Even returning TST students will find it useful).
At the beginning of September, TGSA hosted a ‘SSHRC and OGS Grant Writing Workshop’ which was well attended and very beneficial. Although we were not able to record to session, TGSA forwarded an email to all TST students with information and links to the SGS website where a previous SSHRC info-session was already recorded and available for use. Towards the end of the month, TGSA hosted a ‘Back to School Social Hour’ via Zoom where friends, new and old, gathered for conversation.
TGSA is currently in the midst of planning events, workshops and socials for this year. As of this moment, everything will be online via Zoom. However, come January, we may begin hosting events, workshops, and socials in person. We are also working to organize our annual Conference; and there will be an upcoming referendum on a change to the TGSA Constitution and the possibility of switching our affiliation from the University of Toronto Students’ Union (UTSU) to the University of Toronto Graduate Students’ Union (GSU) (more information on that later).
If you have not already done so, please join our Facebook group and also follow us on Twitter @tstga. We communicate using these platforms and also via email. Furthermore, you will find the same information reiterated on this website.
If you have any question or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mia Theocharis, TGSA President
