The GSS Council is the primary governing body of the GSS, and is made up of elected, departmental graduate student representatives, together with the GSS Executive and graduate student senators. The Council guides and oversees the actions and initiatives of the GSS to serve all graduate students at UBC. All graduate programs and departments may appoint a council member to the GSS Council, and larger departments may also request a second council member.
All meetings are open for graduate students and honorary members of the GSS to attend, and are a great opportunity to explore the Society’s current initiatives and observe how the Council functions. If you’re a not a graduate student, please request an invitation to attend by contacting the GSS President (Chair of the Board), at email@example.com.
The Council meets on the third Thursday of every month in the Michael Kingsmill Forum (Room 4301) in the AMS Student Nest, from 5:30-9:00pm.
