GSE Award

GSE Award

Award for Excellence and Innovation in Enhancing the Graduate Student Experience

Notice: The CAGS GSE Award has been cancelled for 2021. We expect to resume this award during the 2022 award season.

What makes a graduate school great?

Many things. But more than ever, graduate schools can make a difference in their students’ lives beyond just granting a degree. They do that by being accessible, supportive and open to new approaches.

The Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS) presents this award annually to a member institution. The winner is invited to share their work at a CAGS conference workshop. It is a way to celebrate the innovative and creative ways graduate schools serve their school. It is also an opportunity to share best practice and experience with member schools, fellow deans and stakeholders.
