Important Documents

Running for GSA Office or Council is a great volunteering opportunity for graduate students at Concordia University. Not only do executives and council member work to improve student-life and wellbeing, but this professional development opportunity can be added to your Co-Curricular Record (CCR).

Please note that GSA Executives and Council Members are not considered employees of the GSA, but rather members of our governing system.
