Student Representative

The Concept of a Student Representative

Global Institute of Theology is committed to serve the students to its best ability. Consequently, a student representative is the correct person to share and/or express the students’ needs with the Board and the director. Since the number of students is limited, one student representative will meet the needs. Preferably the student will be an active student. However, an Alumni will also fit the purpose. In the future, both may be needed. As the school grows in numbers, the number of student representatives will increase. Ideally, a representative for every MQF level taught at GIT. Nominations for the Student Representatives will be made by any member of the board and seconded by another member of the council. However, the Director can veto the nomination if he sees fit.
