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 an 11-person coordinating board that works with three advisors, as well as volunteers who help run our space and programming. The coordinating board is split into three subcommittees: logistics, events, and space.
- The logistics committee discusses university-wide initiatives, fundraising, outreach, and other similar topics.
- The events committee focuses on the events and programming put on by the CGSA
- The space committee focuses on the operation of the physical space, such as cleanliness, staffing, and creating community within the space.
All coordinators meet weekly on Thursdays from 7-8, which is 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 our coordinators each semester. If you are interested in running for the coordinating 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.
