The Post-Secondary Education Task Force of Public Interest Alberta is hosting meetings in 5 major cities to reach out to partner organizations and concerned citizens to get involved in advocating for more investments in post-secondary education.
Post-Secondary Education is the answer to building a highly skilled, prosperous and vibrant society. When we ask how we can solve most of the issues facing Alberta today, investing in post-secondary education is one of the most important things we should be doing.
University of Alberta graduate students are encouraged to attend the U of A meeting on Friday, February 27, 2015, to hear about the public advocacy campaign and to share your ideas about the importance of post-secondary education.

The Office of the Provost, working with the GSA, has prepared an updated Information Sheet on the Collective Agreement (CA) between the GSA and the UofA Governing the Academic Employment of Graduate Students.
This Information Sheet highlights many of the terms and conditions as well as your rights and benefits under the CA if you have been appointed as a Teaching or Research Assistant. It also outlines some information with respect to graduate student pay associated with holding an appointment as a TA or RA.
We hope you find it useful. If you have any questions or concerns about the CA or your appointment as a TA or RA, please let me know.
