About The Event
There. Is. Not. Enough. Money. Rising costs of living are wringing our pockets dry. McGill tries everything they can to keep it that way.
Come learn more about the infuriatingly complex and uneven funding and wage structures for grad students—share your experience in facilitated small groups and connect with current and new movements for better living. We’ll hear from folks who have been researching the situation at McGill to understand the landscape of interconnected problems we face. Then we’ll talk about what’s been tried so far, through more formal committees and PGSS work, AGSEM bargaining, and efforts from the physics GSA. Finally we’ll shift toward what we can do together in the future to creatively fight unfair funding together. <3
All graduate students are welcome! Dinner will be provided. Please RSVP so we can order enough for all!
In advance of the Town Hall, we encourage you to fill out the 2023 PGSS Funding Survey. This 10-minute survey is designed to assess the adequacy of student funding across all graduate programs at McGill. The results will inform discussions with the McGill administration about how graduate students can be better supported financially.
PGSS will be raffling off 25 gift cards valued at $25 (for the online retailer of your choice) as a thank-you for completing the survey.
