The NMCGSA is a student-led organization that represents all graduate students in the Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations. NMCGSA operates under the umbrella of The University of Toronto’s Graduate Students’ Union (GSU), who deals with graduate student matters and concerns across the university.
In a given month, NMCGSA will plan socials and other recreational activities, organize the Annual Graduate Student’s Symposium, and oversee the publication of the Symposium proceedings. The Executive council meets on a regular basis to attend to any concerns or issues brought to the attention of the Executive by its student members and act as a liaison between the faculty. At the end of each academic year, the student body elects student officials to form the Executive Council for the following year. You can find information on the electoral process under the Constitution page.
