OUR HISTORY

On May 14th, 2004 students from the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) and ACTS voted to approve the formation of the Trinity Western University Graduate Student Association (TWUGSA). Prior to this vote, the TWUGSA Constitution was approved by the TWU Board of Governors and the TWUGSA Bylaws were approved by the President's Cabinet.

The main focus of TWUGSA is to serve the graduate student body by providing representation on a global scale through personal involvement with Trinity Western University's administrative committees. Secondly, TWUGSA wishes to enhance and support the individual graduate student experience at Trinity Western University.

LET'S GET IN

TOUCH!

Student groups wishing to be officially recognized by TWUGSA are required to submit an application form to any member of the council.
