GSS Strategic Plan
The proposed GSS Strategic Plan encompasses three themes to support the success and well-being of UBC graduate students:
1. Graduate Student Academics
2. Graduate Student Community
3. Our Graduate Student Society
Within each theme are goals that your GSS will work towards, including steps to achieve each goal and specific actions for each step. Many of these actions are already underway at the GSS; they have been included because they constitute essential steps in the five-year vision of the GSS.
Please read the GSS Strategic Plan – Draft and let us know your thoughts!
