All SOGS members in good standing are eligible to join a committee (or multiple committees)! SOGS committees are the cornerstone of #GradLifeWesternU.
Committees are an integral part of SOGS’ advocacy mandate and oversee most of the projects and initiatives SOGS works on annually. Being a committee member helps improve conditions for SOGS’ diverse membership on- and off-campus, enriching graduate student life by connecting students across disparate departments and faculties.
WANT TO JOIN A COMMITTEE?
To join any of our committees, please contact the committee Chair directly by email, listed below. Let them know you are interested to join their committee by sending them a simple email. *Please do not send a resume.
Read up on the committees you are interested in. There is a pamphlet describing what each committee does, what you will learn by being on the committee, and what the time commitment to join. Check out the COMMITTEE MANUALS HERE!
Benefits of getting involved:
By attending and participating in committee meetings as a volunteer member, we will issue you a $5 gift voucher to the Grad Club for each meeting! Committees typically meet once per month.
