How GSA is governed
GSA is governed by a Council of 15 graduate students, elected annually by the graduate student body.
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.
