MGA Advisory Groups

Get involved with a special interest group that supports graduate students.

Contribute to the wonderful work of the MGA!

Each of our office-bearers on the MGA Executive Committee run advisory groups to learn more about what graduate students want and make decisions about which events, activities and issues should be pursued each semester.

This is a great way for us to reach out to a wider group of graduate students, and for you to meet your peers. Being in one of our advisory groups is not a competitive process and expressions of interest are accepted all year round.

Please note, you can identify with your special interest group, and allies are very welcome to join too.

Ready to go? Simply find the area that interests you in the list below and email the contact person to introduce yourself.  The contact person will then let you know when and where the next meeting is scheduled.
