About the Graduate Student Council (GSC)

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) will serve 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 will begin its work on July 1, 2017.

GSC Membership

The GSC is made up of twelve philosophy graduate students. Eight of the twelve members of the GSC will be appointed by a selection committee. Four of the twelve members of the GSC will be at-large members elected by student associate members of the APA.

Nominations for appointed seats on the GSC are now open; see below. Appointments will be made by December 31, 2016.

Candidates wishing to stand for election to the GSC will be able to submit their candidate materials beginning early in 2017. Elections will take place in spring 2017.

Terms of Office

All members of the GSC serve two-year terms. Terms begin each year on July 1. GSC members’ terms are staggered: half of the GSC members (four appointed members and two elected members) serve terms beginning in even years and the other half serve terms beginning in odd years.

Term Limits

Any individual may serve a maximum of two terms on the GSC. Partial terms of one year or less will not count toward this two-term limit; partial terms of more than one year will count toward the two-term limit.

Eligibility

To be eligible to serve on the GSC, one must be an APA student associate member and a graduate student actively enrolled in a MA or PhD program in philosophy (or a cognate field eligible for APA membership) at the time of election or appointment. GSC members must maintain their APA memberships throughout their terms on the GSC. Once elected or appointed, GSC members may serve out their terms even if their student status changes.

Nominations for Appointed Seats

Any student associate member of the APA (including undergraduate and high school students) may nominate any graduate student actively enrolled in a MA or PhD program in philosophy (or a cognate field eligible for APA membership). Self-nomination is welcome and encouraged. Nominees who are not current APA members will be given the opportunity to become members in order to be considered for GSC membership. Nominees will be required to submit a brief CV, a letter from their institution certifying their student status, and a statement of interest.

Questions may be directed to [email protected].
