Documents and Governance

The UMGSA Council is comprised of student councillors who represent a wide variety of departments in the Faculty of Graduate Studies. All departments are welcome to participate, and regular attendance as well as regular participation in one of the UMGSA’s Internal Committees earns departments a Departmental Grant, to be distributed annually.

If you are a councillor, or are interested in the business of the UMGSA, it may serve you to have a look at our governing documents. This is where you can also find various forms and information on becoming a councillor.
