Mandate and terms of reference

The Graduate Student Committee, or GSC, was formed in 1998.  It’s mandate is to reflect the views of, and address issues important to, graduate students across Canada. The GSC consists of representatives of each institution in Canada which has a graduate program in astronomy and chooses to participate as well as an elected committee Chair and Secretary.  The job of the Chair is to represent the views and concerns of the committee to the CASCA Board of Directors, while the Secretary records minutes and ensures proper documentation of the GSC’s activities.

CASCA recommends that Canadian Physics and Astronomy departments adhere to an annual coordinated deadline for acceptance of first round graduate school offers in astronomy/astrophysics programs of no earlier than 28th February.
