How you can join us?
There are many ways to get involved with the GSS. This includes volunteering as a representative for your department, as an external representative, voting, and sharing your ideas to make the graduate student experience the best it can be.

The Council is the Society’s most important decision-making body. If you want to work on behalf of your department improving its academic and personal life, and if you are interested in the work of other departments, run to become
your departmental representative.

Joining council is simple:

  1. If you are interested in representing your department contact your graduate student advisor.
  2. Fill in the attached affidavit and email it to the GSS.  aa@gss.ubc.ca
  3. If you are the only candidate for the position, you can take your seat immediately. If there is more than one candidate your department will need to organize and election
  4. Undergo a short training with the GSS president which will be scheduled to suit you.

The work of Council is supported by several committees. Each committee focuses on a specific function of our day-to-day operations or a specific topic important to graduate students. As a graduate student you can any attend committee meetings as a non-voting member, or you can join committees when there are vacancies and work on
issues important to you. Find out more
