Today begins the three-week voting period to elect two members to the APA Graduate Student Council (GSC).

The GSC serves as a liaison between the graduate students in philosophy and the APA, 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 as well.

The GSC is made up of twelve philosophy graduate students. Eight of the members are appointed by a selection committee including members of the board of officers. Four members are elected by the student associate members of the APA. 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.

The two candidates who receive the most votes will be elected to two-year terms on the council beginning July 1, 2020. The candidates for election were given the opportunity to submit candidate statements, photos, and other ballot information. Student members are encouraged to review the candidate information prior to voting.


Only student associate members of the APA are eligible to vote, and you must be signed in to the APA website to access the ballot link. Voting will remain open for three weeks, closing on June 17.

Once submitted, your votes are final. You will not be able to return to your ballot to change your votes, so please consider your choices carefully before submitting.

Go to the online ballot.

Thank you for taking the time to vote!
