SGPS Council

The Graduate and Professional Student Council acts as the legislative body of the Society. Its decisions are final, unless they are amended or rejected by referendum or General Meeting. It is responsible for directing and overseeing the activities of the Executive, for formulating and authorizing Society policies, and for acting as a liaison between the Executive and the ordinary members of the Society. The decisions of the Executive may be amended or rejected by a majority vote of Council.

Representatives from each department or school sit on Council to act as a liaison between the SGPS and all graduate and professional students. Aboriginal and international student representatives also sit on Council.

We welcome all graduate and professional students to attend Council meetings.

Meeting location and Council documents will be sent to the Council mailing list prior to each meeting. All meetings are at 5:30PM unless otherwise noted in the Council agenda. Council does not meet in June or July.
