Student Caucus

The Gerontology Graduate Caucus (GGC) is the graduate student organization of the Department of Gerontology at Simon Fraser University. The GGC represents Gerontology graduate students in discussion of academic and intellectual issues at both the departmental and university level. The GGC also promotes career opportunities in Gerontology and organizes social and recreational activities for Gerontology graduate students. The GGC is a member of the Simon Fraser Student Society and maintains an active relationship with the Canadian Association on Gerontology Student Connection – Connection Étudiante. Some of the current projects of the GGC include coordination of social and networking events including the annual GGC Career Night. Look for upcoming articles and announcements from the GGC in future newsletters.

If you would like to learn more about us, please contact the GGC Chair, Patrick Aubert at  

Student Zone

While the faculty and staff in the Department of Gerontology are available for advice and guidance, the ultimate responsibility for completeness and correctness of course selection, for compliance with and completion of program and degree requirements and for observance of regulations and deadlines, rests with the student. Graduate Regulations can be found in the University Calendar.
