Workshops and Social Events

The GSA hosts a number of social events every year where graduate students get the chance to meet peers, win prizes, and experience what it's like to be a member of the graduate student community. Details of our 2021-2022 are forthcoming, so stay tuned! 



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 2021-2022 Coffee Breaks!
