Awards Night

The annual GSA Recognition Awards are granted to graduate students who have distinguished themselves in research, teaching, academic achievement, leadership, and service to the University and to the wider community. The GSA also recognizes University faculty and staff members for their outstanding contribution to graduate education, and acknowledges those alumni and benefactors who continue to support and champion graduate students at the University.

GSA Awards winners are celebrated at an annual GSA Awards Night celebration in March.

Coffee Breaks

GSA Coffee Breaks give graduate students a chance to meet peers from across departments and faculties during small, frequent gatherings. Coffee and refreshments are provided. Stay tuned for information about our 2023-2024 Coffee Breaks!
