The Urban Studies Graduate Student Association is a Caucus of the SFU Graduate Student Society. All current Urban Studies students at Simon Fraser University are automatically members. The USGSA Executive team is a group of student elected leaders who volunteer their time to organize and facilitate the work of the USGSA.
Our mandate is to promote the well-being of students through networking and social activities, assist students with professional and academic skills, and to act on behalf of our students members on issues of concern through advocacy, action, and organization. We initiate and support various student projects, organize social events, and represent MUrb students on the Urban Studies Steering Committee, SFU’s Graduate Student Society and various other decision making organizations. Representatives are elected for one-year terms, and elections are held in the spring.
