GSA Board Strategic Work Plan

Each spring the GSA student executives work with the GSA Board to produce a Strategic Work Plan (SWP). The SWP is the document that steers and prioritizes the work and initiatives of the GSA. The GSA sees this as a living document, shifting directions as needed as the provincial, federal, and University landscapes change. It is developed annually with reference to the Strategic Work Plans of previous GSA Boards, and provides a planning document for this and future years. The SWP reflects the GSA's vision and mission to advocate for all graduate students to the University of Alberta and the Alberta Government for a safe, supportive, respectful, accessible, and inclusive community that fosters the multi-faceted roles played by graduate students.


2020-2021 SWP

In order to develop a set of strategic priorities that reflect the changing needs of graduate students, GSA DEOs invited graduate students to participate in a townhall event on 22 May 2020 and circulated a feedback survey to graduate students during the period of 14-29 May 2020. These consultation initiatives yielded a significant amount of feedback and helped shape the 2020-2021 GSA Board Strategic Work Plan.

As with last year, this year's main priorities have been grouped into three categories: connect, support, and advocate. The DEOs will continue to engage in ongoing conversation with the GSA Board and GSA Council concerning the pursuit of the goals outlined in the SWP.

The DEOs will report on their progress over the course of their terms to GSA Council at its October 2020, January 2021, and April 2021 meetings. These updates will be posted below after the GSA Council meetings.
