The Graduate Representative Council (GRC) is comprised of one representative (“Grad Rep”) from each academic unit with a graduate program at UVic, the five member GSS Executive Board, and a representative of CUPE 4163 (representing sessionals and teaching and research assistants). The Grad Council meets monthly on Tuesdays at 5pm.
Representatives to the GRC are elected by students within their respective department each September.
Each Grad Rep serves on a subcommittee of the GRC. GSS committees help to carry out the goals and directives of the GRC. Committees have seats for members at large, and partcipation in a GRC committee is a key way to influence decisions made by your student society.
