Hi Everyone,

We hope you are all having an excellent start to the fall semester!

After reviewing some of your feedback from the CSA Graduate Student Survey, we decided to put together a regular newsletter that includes academic acknowledgements, award opportunities, job postings, and professional development workshops when they are available.

The newsletter will also include updates about the Student Concerns Subcommittee’s ongoing projects. We will do our best to include information and opportunities that are relevant to sociology graduate students working in a diversity of areas, and we would also like to encourage all members to submit suggestions for items that you would like to see included in this newsletter.

September Highlights
* The CSA Student Concerns Subcommittee created a graduate student survey that was circulated among members in mid-September to help gather feedback as we begin planning for the year. Feedback from the survey will be used to address issues like funding opportunities and Congress panel topics.  If you have not had a chance to complete the survey, it is available until Tuesday, October 15, 2019. Please click here to access the survey.
* Based on student feedback, the SCS also consulted with the Executive Committee to provide recommendations for changes to the Congress Travel Grant eligibility measures.

* Over the past few months we have also been working with the Equity Committee to help create an academic mentorship program for Black, Indigenous, and Racialized CSA student members.

* Last, the SCS received approval for the creation of a Professional Development Webinar Series to help prepare student members for academic and non-academic career paths. We hope that all of these initiatives will bring about greater equity in opportunity for sociology students in Canada.
