The School of Environmental Sciences’ Graduate Student Council (SES-GSC)

About the SES-GSC

The School of Environmental Sciences’ Graduate Student Council (SES-GSC) is an informal group of graduate students within SES that meets monthly to discuss issues relating to the well-being of our members and ways to foster graduate student participation within the department. The SES-GSC considers all graduate students within SES to be members of the council. We have three primary objectives:

  1. Advance the interests of our members by providing a link between graduate students, faculty, and staff within SES and to the larger University of Guelph community.
  2. Foster a strong community of graduate students within SES by encouraging student participation and listening to the concerns of our members.
  3. Conduct all business in a professional, transparent, and fiscally responsible manner.

Our executive is as diverse as the research that occurs within SES. If you have an event idea, a question or concern about aspects of being a graduate student, or are thinking of joining the SES GSC executive, contact us or join our next meeting! Check out our Instagram or Twitter, or contact our email!

Meetings take place biweekly on TEAMS. Reach out to the SES email or to Ajwal (president of the council) for a meeting link or for any inquires. Looking for new members!!
