Working Group

Working group TO JOIN

The GSS Committees are created by and report to the GSS Council. Committees are groups of graduate students, that focus on areas of specific importance for the Society’s services and direction. They meet once a month, usually for no longer than two hours. Meeting dates are set based on members’ availability. Occasionally, some Committee work occurs over email, and it is expected that Committee members will take the time to engage via email in addition to attending the monthly meetings.

Research Assistant Working Group

The RAWG is open to any graduate student at SFU, regardless of whether they have a research assistant contract. For more information or to get involved, please contact Reese Muntean, Director of Academic Relations, at

Other Working Group

Want to form and/or lead a working group for a one-time project or a special issue not addressed elsewhere?

(Examples: obtaining more graduate space on campus) The GSS can help put students who are passionate about a particular issue in contact with one another to form an enthusiastic working group and can further provide meeting space, an email address or listserv, and other support.
