Governance: Graduate Student Council

The APA board of officers unanimously approved the creation of a new APA Graduate Student Council (GSC) in 2016. The GSC serves as a liaison between the graduate students in the discipline of philosophy and the APA, with the aim of reporting to the board of officers on issues of interest, concern, and relevance to philosophy graduate students. The GSC advises the board on how to best serve and support graduate students and may take up projects of its own, either by decision of the GSC or by assignment of the board of officers. The inaugural GSC began its work on July 1, 2017.

Graduate Student Council Officers 2017–2018

  • Chair: Zoë Johnson King
  • Secretary: Sahar Joakim
