The GSS has several decision making bodies, the Executive, Council and Committees. Their work is also supported by Commissioners. Here you can find more information about how each of these contributes to the running of the GSS, as well as information about the policies and constitution of the Society.
If you are a graduate student who is interested in joining GSS Council – you can find information on what you need to do HERE.

The GSS Council represents and advocates on behalf of all graduate students at UBC Vancouver to the University, the Government, and the public. The Council is comprised of executive members and graduate student representatives elected from each graduate department of the University.

All graduate programs and departments, regardless of size, are entitled to appoint one council member to the GSS Council. Depending on the number of enrollment, larger departments may request a second council member.

Affiliated Organizations (AOs) are a vital part of the GSS. We work closely with on- and off-campus graduate student associations and university groups throughout the year to foster and strengthen a close-knitted graduate student community.

One of the perks of being an Affiliated Organization is the GSS Event Fund, a rebate of expenses for events organized and held by AOs. We support AOs in creating and organizing events that will be of social, cultural or academic interest to their fellow graduate students, with an emphasis on events held at the Graduate Student Centre and on interdisciplinary events.
