Kinesiology Graduate Student Association (KGSA)

The University of Waterloo Kinesiology Graduate Student Association (KGSA) is a nonprofit organization which represents four academic streams (Biomechanics, Physiology and Nutrition, Neuroscience, and the Coursework Masters program) within the Department of Kinesiology. The KGSA executive speaks on behalf of these students in department, Faculty, and university wide councils. The KGSA is a small part of the university wide Graduate Student Association. A primary goal is to enhance the experience of our graduate students through social and recreational events.


Each calendar year a new executive is elected at an annual general meeting held in late April. The current KGSA executive typically meets once a month to discuss and vote on positions relating to current events within departmental/faculty/university administration levels.

Details on executive member roles and voting requirements are noted in the KGSA constitution.

  2. Mar. 11, 2020Mindfulness Mondays

    The KGSA would like to invite you to a new initiative for grad students called "Mindfulness Mondays". The purpose of this initiative is to provide space and time in our busy schedules early in the week to engage in the practice of mindfulness and mindfulness meditation. The format of the Mindfulness Mondays initiative is very open ended, in the hopes of respecting peoples' privacy and willingness to participate in person. Every Monday between 9am - 10am, we invite people wanting to actively participate in this initiative to gather in the reading room on the third floor of BMH (BMH 3035).
