The Graduate Student Society (GSS) is the independent voice of graduate students on campus. The Society’s mission statement is:

  • The UBC Graduate Student Society represents and advocates on behalf of all UBC Graduate Students to the University, the Government, and the public.
  • We provide academic, professional, social, and recreational services to our members, and act as stewards of the Thea Koerner House Graduate Student Centre.


The AMS represents over 44,000 UBC students as well as students at affiliated colleges. The AMS operates student services, student owned businesses, resource groups, and clubs.

In addition to offering services to students, the AMS is an advocate of students’ issues and ensures the needs of students are presented to the University administration and the federal, provincial, and municipal governments.



The Antigone Foundation is an organization that seeks to encourage young women aged 10-35 to become politically and civically engaged. The Foundation proposes to do this through Antigone Magazine, its inter-organization activism, and its blog.  The Foundation also seeks to found a magazine written by and for young women aged 10-15, as well as, an outreach program to educate and inspire young girls to become active and involved in politics and issues that affect them.
