ABOUT THE GSA
The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is an independent, member-driven organization whose purpose is to serve and further the interests of all graduate students at UNB, whether they are in Fredericton, Saint John, or anywhere else in the world. All full and part-time graduate students enrolled at UNB are members of the GSA. Together we are over 1600 students strong.
A SAFE SPACE
The GSA Council passed a motion on February 6th, 2008. making the Alden Knowlan house, also known as the Grad House, a SAFE SPACE. The entire Alden Nowlan House, including the bar, is a safe space for all individuals to be open about their sexual orientation or gender identity, without fear of discrimination due to homophobia, transphobia, or other harassment. The GSA Executive Committee strives to make the Grad House as welcoming as possible to all individuals, regardless of ethnic origin, religious belief, or sexual orientation. When you see this sticker, it means “ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and harassment are not acceptable.” The GSA Executive Committee takes harassment seriously! The message on this sticker should also be taken seriously by all individuals, because we want everyone to have an enjoyable experience at the Grad House.
Yesterday, the final report of the President’s Taskforce and its recommendations were presented at the Senate meeting. The GSA took part in the president’s task force and presented the recommendations based on the survey of Graduate Student Funding. The GSA is appreciative that the report has been submitted for implementation and that the recommendations are a great start to fixing the funding situation for Graduate students at UNB….
