COMMITTEES

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.

Not sure if you want to join a SOGS committee?

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.

We have 14+ committees. THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

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.
