Welcome, graduate student members!


We are your newly formed Ryerson Graduate Students’ Union! The Ryerson Graduate Students’ Union is governed by a Graduate Executive Committee (four elected Executive Members) and a Graduate Council (seven elected Graduate Directors). We are a membership-driven union, representing over 2500 full-time and part-time graduate students at Ryerson University. We are dedicated to supporting your graduate journey through the sponsorship of graduate-centric initiatives, events, campaigns, and student groups.

The Ryerson Graduate Students’ Union currently supports graduate students who present their research work at conferences through our academic and career support program. We also support graduate students with organizing graduate academic and social events on campus. These events include, but are not limited to, Wine and Cheese nights, Write-a-thon events, and on-campus conferences. Additionally, your Ryerson Graduate Students’ Union provides support to Graduate Course Unions who represent their respective graduate programs by organizing program-specific events and initiatives. Lastly, we host social networking events throughout the year that provide opportunities for you to meet your peers and Ryerson graduate alumni.


We can’t wait to meet you, and we hope you have a terrific time at Ryerson!


In Solidarity,

The Executive Team

Our mission: Official union for students, we are currently incorporated as a non-for profit. This referendum will allow students to vote for us (the RGSU) to be their representative student body.



On November 2nd until November 5th, 2020, all Ryerson Graduate Students will be able to vote in favour of establishing the Ryerson Graduate Students' Union (us!) as your official governing student body. 

Log on to RAMSS via my.ryerson.ca to vote in the referendum!
