Governance: Graduate Student Council
Group Pages

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) serves as a liaison between graduate students in philosophy and the APA. It reports to the APA board of officers, and the GSC chair is a voting member of the APA board of officers.

The GSC's activities consist in advising the APA board on issues relevant to philosophy graduate students, occasionally undertaking projects at the board's request. Additionally, the council regularly undertakes projects of its own that further its goals.

Formed by an act of the APA board in 2016, the GSC's inaugural membership began their work in 2017.

For more information, including details regarding becoming a member, see About the GSC.

Liaisons to APA Committees

Several members of the GSC also represent the interests of graduate students on other APA committees.
