Each year up to fifteen graduate students are elected to form the MGA Executive Committee (MGAEC). The role of this committee is to represent graduate student interests within the University.

Office-bearers focus on addressing specific issues such as those affecting women, international, LGBTQIA+ and Indigenous graduate students. Campus representatives address student issues at the four main Victorian campuses.

The MGAEC meets every month to make decisions on how the MGA operates, how graduate student funds are spent and how the MGA can improve the overall Monash University graduate student experience. Observers are welcome: please email Jenny Reeder for details of the next meeting.

From time to time, graduate student members on the MGAEC complete their studies and leave Monash part-way through their term of office on the MGAEC. Where a vacancy arises between annual elections, graduate students can be co-opted to the committee.

Work for the MGA

The MGA employs Monash graduate students to fill the receptionist roles at the Clayton and Caulfield offices. When a vacancy arises we advertise the position through our email newsletter and on our website.

The Monash Graduate Association (MGA) is the representative body for all graduate research and coursework students enrolled at Monash University. So, what sets us apart from the University services? The MGA is an independent, not-for-profit association governed by graduate students, for graduate students. Our primary aim is to be there for you! If you can’t find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
