Graduate Peer Support (GPS)

The Graduate Peer Support (GPS) Committee is focused on supporting graduate student wellness through providing community space, events, and funding opportunities.


  • Organizing monthly Peer Support programming such as: drop-in discussion groups, coffee hours, themed talks from faculty and graduate students, therapy animals, meditation, or nature walks.
  • Overseeing the Food Bank Program for Non-TA Members; this project provided grocery store gift cards to non-TA members facing financial need. Notably, PSAC 610 runs a similar food support program for TAs.
  • Reviewing applications to the Wellness Joint Fund, a project managed by SOGS which provides funding to wellness initiatives organized by departments, student groups, and other member-affiliated units across campus.
