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 Board recommendation for graduate school offer deadlines (Sept. 2019):
La CASCA recommande que les départements canadiens de physique et d’astronomie respectent une date limite annuelle coordonnée pour l’acceptation des offres de première ronde d’études supérieures en astronomie/astrophysique au plus tôt le 28 février.
