We would like to welcome all of our graduate student members, new and returning, to the 2016-2017 academic year at UNBC! Please explore our website to learn about our organization and the services we provide. Join our Facebook group and follow us on Twitter and Instagram to stay up-to-date on everything that is going on in the graduate student community at UNBC. Ask us how you can get connected with NBCGSS, student lead campaigns, and the UNBC community.
NBCGSS began in 1997, less than a decade after UNBC’s inception. The NBCGSS Graduate Council democratically represents almost 600 full- and part-time graduate students, who pay dues and make up our general membership. Members are accorded certain rights by our Society Bylaws, and representatives of the Graduate Council provide advocacy and peer support in navigating academic and administrative challenges our members may face. Members of our Graduate Council also ensure that there is graduate student representation on boards and committees across campus. Throughout the year, NBCGSS coordinates various social and community service events to foster a thriving graduate student community. We invite you to come and get involved!
In March, 2016 graduate students at UNBC voted in favor of joining the British Columbia Federation of Students (BC-FS). NBCGSS will become a full member of BC-FS in September, 2016. As a member of BC-FS, we will be able to offer our students additional services, supports, and resources which we are very excited about.
