The Philosophy Graduate Student Association

The Philosophy Graduate Student Association (PGSA) was officially formed in 2010. Its primary purpose is to represent the interests of its membership within both the Department of Philosophy and Queen’s University. The PGSA holds monthly meetings throughout the Fall and Winter terms and elects representatives to university bodies such as: the Department’s Committee of Graduate Studies, the Department’s Equity and Women’s Concerns Committee, PSAC Local 901, and the Society of Graduate and Professional Students. In addition to its representative role, the PGSA promotes intellectual growth and a spirit of community within the Department.  It does so by organizing the Philosophy Graduate Colloquium and social events for its membership.
