GSA General Election

Every year in February-March, graduate students at the University of Alberta cast votes to elect fellow gradate students to five (5) Directly-Elected Officer positions - President, Vice-President Academic, Vice-President External, Vice-President Labour, and Vice-President Student Services. The Directly-Elected Officers represent graduate students on committees and councils across campus and to all levels of government. Graduate students also elect ten (10) Councillors-at-Large, who sit on GSA Council and represent all University of Alberta graduate students. Click here for information on each of these positions.
