  1. Professional Graduate Students’ Caucus is Recruiting Executives


The Professional Graduate Students’ Caucus is looking for new executives to make a difference. Professional Graduate Programs are those that do not require research (typically not funded). The PGSC is a new caucus aimed at representing the interests of the Professional Graduate Students at the University of Toronto: funding, academic support, spaces, connections and social interaction, professional development and networking. There is exciting pioneering work to be done to build a community of motivated and active students among the 50+ professional graduate programs offered at the University and we need a strong group. It is a great opportunity to work with like-minded, motivated graduate students, to build something for future students to build upon! If you are interested please don’t hesitate to send your resume to David Gafni, PGSC Chair, at pgsc@utgsu.ca
