Welcome to the Graduate Students' Association of the University of Calgary!
On November 26th and 27th the GSA hosted a referendum to decide whether or not they should join the Alberta Graduate Provincial Advocacy Council (ab-GPAC). According to GSA bylaws, the results of the vote are only valid if 10% of our active members (551 students) participate in the vote. 897 of our 5514 students voted (16.3%). 97.2% voted in favour of joining GPAC. 2.8% voted against.
On behalf of the GSA, thank you for voting!
For more information, please see the GPAC draft bylaws
6th Annual GSA Holiday Food Drive
The GSA's 6th Annual Holiday Food Drive is around the corner and about to be put into high gear, with proceeds going directly to the Campus Food Bank. Here's how it works: Departmental Graduate Associations (DGAs) collect food items within their departments, and the DGA with the highest number of food items per capita withs a $300 coupon for the Last Defence Lounge! The final day for item collection will be December 5, 2014. For more details about the type of items we will be accepting, contest rules, drop off locations, dates, and times, please click here. Please contact the VP Student Life if you have any questions.
