Advanced Degree Students' Association

The Advanced Degree Students’ Association (ADSA) exists for the benefit of all Advanced Degree students at the Toronto School of Theology. Whether full time or part time, all AD students enrolled at any TST college are members of the ADSA, pay fees to the ADSA, and can nominate and elect their fellow students to the ADSA Board. 

According to the ADSA Constitution (available below), the ADSA provides a forum for the expression of student concerns, acts as a liaison with the TST administration in regards to corporate complaints, proposals, and procedures, and ensures student representation on the TST Board of Trustees and all advanced degree committees. The ADSA also encourages cooperation and community between students and faculty, promotes the social and political participation of students, and organizes opportunities for academic and professional development for students. 

The ADSA communicates with the TST community through the TST mailing list, our website at, and our Facebook group at To contact the ADSA, you can approach any board member, comment on our website or Facebook group, or email the current president, Becca Spellacy, at
