The 2018/2019 Graduate Student Association Executive Council election was conducted successfully.  Please join me in welcoming the following GSA Executives.

Read short bios on each of the individuals here.

President: Luke Shaver (100% Y)

Vice President: Chuanxiu Michael Pei (78.5% Y)

We humbly request that you provide all the support they need as Luke resumes his role and assists our VP, Michael in settling into his post as we build our dream team to serve the graduate student body at TWU.

The referendum on the health & dental plan is to launch to elicit overall support for this policy from the Graduate Student body. The details of this policy are here.

Our Services


Student groups wishing to be officially recognized by TWUGSA are required to submit an application form to any member of the council. The TWUGSA wants to support you in your intellectual and spiritual growth while you study at TWU SGS/ACTS.                                                                                            


Free Pancake breakfast

FREE regular and gluten-free Pancakes with all the stuff you've come to love on top! Every Second Wednesday, from 8:30am to 11:10am at the grad collegium. Come out and find ways that the GSA can assist your academic experience. We also do [at least] 3 gift card giveaways at each breakfast!

Strategic sponsorships

The GSA Council sponsors various events and approves funding for activities within the university. In the 2017-2018 academic year, we funded the Learning Commons & Writing Centre in the amount of $1,500 as well as the first place prize for the 3-minute-thesis competition in the amount of $500.


Free Grad collegium coffee

Through the GSA's partnership with the Graduate Collegium Honor Bar, students get 1 complimentary cup of coffee a day. The spirit of this offer is to encourage students to develop friendships with others in the Collegium.
(Refills are at the normal price as posted)


The TWUGSA will actively defend and represent the needs and requests of the graduate student body through consultation and communication with all affected stakeholders to serve the graduate student body and further its interests.                                                                                                                


Hosted Events

In addition to our monthly pancake breakfast, the GSA hosts the annual christmas banquet for grad students, and faculty as well as their friends and family. Tickets sell out quickly, so plan ahead and reserve your spot.


We exist to serve the graduate student body by providing representation on a global scale through personal involvement with TWU’s administrative committees.
