Currently all students are encouraged to apply to serve on GFC committees for 2018/2019 while the recommendations of the ad hoc Committee are in the process of implementation.
In April 2017, GFC approved the principle that GFC committees should include a significant number of GFC members. In addition, it was felt that filling student positions on GFC committees with GFC members would deepen the engagement of student members, provide them with insights into the work conducted by GFC’s committees, and provide them with productive opportunities to work on issues in greater depth.
GFC is currently working to transition all GFC committee compositions to reflect these principles by the 2019/2020 annual replenishment process. In the interim, the requirement for GFC membership to serve on GFC committees varies between committees.
