Looking to make FRIENDS or meet other graduate students? CONTRIBUTE to your graduate student community by volunteering to serve on a GSS Committee! Whether you are in your first year or final year at UBC, you can still make a difference in graduate student life.

GSS Committees are comprised of a ratio of elected Councillors and “ordinary members”, i.e. someone who is not an elected Councillor… In other words… YOU!

YOU can sit on a GSS Committee, provide input and gain valuable work experience about organizational operations and advocacy issues. Committees meet twice a month, and meetings are usually about two hours long. Food is generally provided at committee meetings.

Open committee positions:

  1. Your name
  2. Your program/department
