The GSS (Graduate Student Society) advocates for, promotes, and protects the academic, social, intellectual, cultural and recreational interests of its members. In a nutshell, the role of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Student Senator is to represent the voice of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Students when it comes to reviewing/approving material that comes through the UBC Senate.
The Faculty of Science Council makes academic decisions for the Faculty of Science (e.g. approving new programs). GSS Representatives make reports to the Faculty of Science Council at each meeting and collaborate with the UBC Science Undergraduate Student Society (SUS) representatives to sponsor a graduate-undergraduate science mentorship program.
The Faculty of Science Council meets every several months throughout the school year.
