What have we been working on?

Core Mandate: To identify key issues affecting graduate student wellbeing and success, and to advocate for policy and procedural changes that are meaningful to graduate students.

 

What we are working on: This year the Student Affairs committee will focus on a core project – the creation of a Graduate Student Advocacy Office. Additionally, the committee will also lobby the BC government for the creation of a BC graduate scholarship, advocate for clarification of UVic policy with regards to graduate student part-time thesis and the legal status of Research Assistants, and work with other GSS committees to increase mental health resources that benefit graduate students.
