General Assembly

The MSU General Assembly is the constitutionally mandated annual meeting of all full-time undergraduate students (18 or more units), wherein any student may submit a motion for discussion or debate and speak for – or against – any issue. The GA serves as an opportunity to participate in the decision-making process of the MSU and have an opportunity to direct the organizations actions. Additionally, it is a place where the business of students is brought before an open and public session, where individuals can have any business addressed and even have binding motions passed on the union.

The 2020 MSU General Assembly, originally scheduled for March 18 at 4pm in Burridge Gym is cancelled. McMaster University has cancelled all events, as well as in-person classes/examinations effective immediately.  GA cannot continue at this time. However, GA will reconvene when appropriate to do so. It will be conducted with the approved 2020 agenda (see below). Updates will be posted on this page and MSU social media as GA information becomes available.
