GSA Accreditation Campaign Runs October 14-27

The GSA Needs You! Yes You!

In existence since 1970, the GSA has been fighting for Concordia graduate students’ rights on the streets and in the classrooms. With over 6,000 members with different nationalities and from 60 different graduate programs, the GSA

  • provides advocacy services to over hundreds of students annually;
  • fills the gaps in provincial health care in by providing the GSA Health and Dental Plan;
  • provides English and French writing classes;
  • defends the rights of international students;
  • provides funding to dozens of students groups;
  • offers over 50 social and cultural events every year.

During the month of October, the GSA will be mounting its largest and most ambitious undertaking in order to obtain official accreditation from the Province of Quebec as the independent body representing the interests of Concordia graduate students.

To obtain this designation, GSA needs 25% of all Concordia graduate students to vote YES.

From October 14th to the 27th, your vote will help mold the unique Concordia graduate student experience for yourself, your peers, and the students of tomorrow.

Information about the voting process will be revealed in the coming days.

So VOTE YES! For GSA Independence
