Executive Committees

The Molecular Genetics Graduate Student Association (GSA) is a committee of graduate student representatives that have two main goals: to present a unified student voice to tackle student issues, and to promote community and wellness for graduate students in the Department of Molecular Genetics. We work within the department and with other GSAs in the Faculty of Medicine to improve your graduate experience.

The GSA is composed of elected Executive Committee members and non-elected social representatives. Elections for our executive committee positions take place every February. If you would like to join, please contact the presidents of the GSA at any time to start as a social representative. The GSA meets once a month to discuss student issues and upcoming events.
