GSS Change Camp
Tuesday, July 19, 2016
9-10:30am, GSS Grad Loft (Rm. 4202 @ The Nest)
Change Camp is a style of a Graduate Student Forum to be regularly hosted by your GSS to better connect with the graduate student community at UBC. The diverse and complex nature of the issues that affect graduate students from each department at UBC during their studies has inspired the format of this session.
Participants will have the opportunity and flexibility to discuss the issues that affect them directly and develop these issues into themes as a group. The end of this session will include an open-ended discussion of how the identified issues and themes can be addressed constructively going forward. The issues identified here will help shape GSS advocacy and policy for years to come.
RSVP: A $10 refundable deposit is required for holding your spot – this will be refunded through attendance and completion of the program automatically. Spots are limited!
