Politics and Governance Students’ Association (POGSA)

Full-time undergrad students enrolled in the Politics and Governance program are automatically a member of the Politics and Governance Students’ Association, which is a campus group recognised by the Toronto Metropolitan Students’ Union (TMSU) (external link) .  The TMSU designates such groups as a course union (external link)  governed by a series of policies, and subject to appropriate risk management.

In addition to TMSU policies, the Politics and Governance Students’ Association is governed by a  (PDF file) constitution (opens in new window)  adopted (and periodically amended) by the Association itself.

The TMSU also notes:

  • Course Unions enable members to organize events and activities at the departmental or program level.

  • As a member of the Toronto Metropolitan Students' Union, you are automatically a member of the course union of the program in which you are enrolled.

  • Your Course Union is run by elected students in your program who represent your interests by organizing a variety of social and program related events. In addition to advocating on program specific issues and acting as a liaison between students and program administrators, some set up services including exam banks and newsletters. Your Course Union may even partner with other Course Unions to create bigger and better events.

  • Course Unions are funded by the Toronto Metropolitan Students' Union and fund raising activities.  The TMSU funds each Union and also offers room booking privileges, mailboxes, email accounts and poster approval.
  • Each course union has an executive (elected yearly) that plans and coordinates activities.

POGSA is also a part of the Society Of Arts, Social Sciences & Humanities (SASSH) (external link, opens in new window) , which represents all students who are enrolled in full-time programs within the Faculty of Arts.

SASSH maintains a list of POGSA officers (external link, opens in new window)
