How We Function


CGSA Coordinators 2013-2014

The Center for Gender, Sexuality and Activism (CGSA) at Boston University is a student organization but we have the added privilege and responsibility of a physical space, located in the basement of the George Sherman Union.

We have a 14-person Leadership Board as well as a bunch of volunteers who help run our space and programming. We have weekly meetings which are open to all members of our community. At our meetings we make decisions based on a consensus model, including Coordinators as well as community members in discussion and actIon. We elect Coordinators and Co-Directors annually. If you are interested in running for the Leadership Board, please reach out to a current Coordinator. Each Coordinator is responsible for their designated area, but everyone (including volunteers) participates heavily in our overall functioning and programming.
