UTGSU Assembly & Engagement

Over the years the UTGSU former council and now Assembly  has dealt with the mundane to the esoteric, such as preposterous tuition increases, university blunders, student income tax deductions, divestment in South Africa, the War in the Gulf, student involvement in departmental committees, comprehensive exams, childcare at U of T, housing in Toronto, SGS Bursaries, etc.

Assembly also receives reports from the UTGSU Executive and spokespeople for groups on campus and in the community. Each UTGSU community member’s contribution is valuable and highly welcomed.

UTGSU Board of Director’s and Assembly Meetings are governed by Bourinot’s Rules of Order.
