Graduate Students’ Association at Scarborough (GSAS) is a student run non-profit organization working to improve the student life for all graduate students at UTSC. Established in 1978 under the former name Scarborough College Association of Graduate Students, the purpose of GSAS is to bring graduate students from all academic departments at UTSC together and ensure all the needs of UTSC graduate students are met.
Membership in GSAS is automatically granted to all graduate students whose home departments are based at UTSC and those who sign an affiliation form indicating they are affiliated with UTSC. If you have any suggestions to make the GSAS executive team better at enhancing your learning experience at UTSC, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the GSAS Executive Team
Members of GSAS elect the executive team every year at the Summer BBQ. The positions are open to all graduate students at UTSC. To find out more about the open positions click here.
The executive team is collectively responsible for the day-to-day decision making of the organization. If you would like to get involved or know more about the election process, please contact us at email@example.com.
Are you a graduate student whose home department is based in St. George campus yet your supervisor is an academic staff at UTSC and you spend the majority of the time (including research and/or TA) at UTSC?
If you are, you need to fill out a Change of Campus Affiliation form. This ensures that you are eligible for research awards and travel grants for UTSC grad students. In addition, it allows funding for graduate students to be properly channelled to UTSC so that our graduate student association receives sufficient funding to host events that benefit UTSC graduate students year-round.
For details and the form, please visit: https://www.sgs.utoronto.ca/academic-progress/student-forms-letters/
NOTE: The Master of Environmental Science, Ph.D of Environmental Science, and MA/PhD in Counselling and Clinical Psychology do NOT need to complete this form since these programs’ home departments are considered to be based at UTSC.
Please contact GSAS for an invite to the GSAS Discord Channel for participating in virtual events.
