How GSA is governed
GSA is governed by a Council of 15 elected graduate students, who act as our board.
The role of Council is to determine GSA’s position on issues affecting graduate students across University, government and community levels, and to make strategic decisions about how GSA operates and spends its funding.
Several members of GSA Council are also Office Bearers. This means they look after the needs of particular groups of students, such as LGBTIQ+ students, women students and students with families.
GSA holds elections annually. Any enrolled graduate student at the University of Melbourne is eligible to nominate (stand) and vote in GSA elections.
Nominations are open as of Monday 25 March.
Completed nomination forms can be scanned and emailed to the Returning Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Hard-copy nominations can also be handed in at GSA Reception during business hours.
When voting opens, all graduate students will receive an email from the University with details on how to vote.
