Welcome to the
Graduate Students’ Association
of the University of Calgary!


Help an Evacuee Experience Calgary through the GSA’s “Nice to Meet You” Initiative

The GSA has developed an initiative to help connect students, primarily our grad student members, with evacuees who are staying on the University of Calgary campus. The initiative “Nice to Meet You” will pair up students with evacuees/evacuee families to explore Calgary.

Even though many evacuees will be able to return home soon, they have been here in Calgary for quite some time now and it would be great for them to be able to experience the City with the companionship of a student. Students are able to select activities to engage evacuees with. Click here to view event activity website links.

If you are interested in volunteering as a student to show evacuees around Calgary, please complete the poll here.

Calgary Pride Parade

GSA and FGS marching together – Sept. 4, registration deadline Aug. 24


The Graduate Students’ Association and the Faculty of Graduate Studies will be marching together in the Calgary Pride Parade on September 4, from 12pm to 1:30pm, along 9th Avenue South (same place as the annual Stampede parade).

Family, partners, and friends of graduate students and university staff and faculty are welcomed to march in the parade!   This is a great opportunity to get involved with the Graduate Students’ Association, interact with fellow students, and meet the Calgary community!  Contact gsasesc@ucalgary.ca by Thursday, August 24 at 5pm and indicate your T-shirt size and colour (blue, magenta, or orange) if you wish to be in the parade.


Mentorship Program

The Mentorship Program helps graduate students attain their desired career goal – whether it’s re-entering industry after graduation (as 70 percent of grad students do) or continuing with academe. This program is free, and helps grad students make professional contacts by pairing students with a mentor in their field of interest.
