Ricardo Friaz elected to the APA’s Graduate Student Council
Ricardo Friaz was elected to one of the two open positions on the American Philosophical Association’s Graduate Student Council (GSC). All members of the GSC serve two-year terms. Terms begin each year on July 1. GSC members’ terms are staggered: half of the GSC members (four appointed members and two elected members) serve terms beginning in even years and the other half serve terms beginning in odd years. Created in 2017, the GSC serves as a liaison between the graduate students in the discipline of philosophy and the APA, with the aim of reporting to the board of officers on issues of interest, concern, and relevance to philosophy graduate students. The GSC advises the board on how to best serve and support graduate students and may take up projects of its own, either by decision of the GSC or by assignment of the board of officers.The GSC consists of eight appointed members, and four elected members.
