The University of Ottawa’s Education Graduate Students’ Association (EGSA) serves a diverse student body of M.A., M.Ed, and Ph.D. students, as well as students in the Graduate Certificate Programs, such as Program Evaluation and Health Professions Education.

Our aims

  1. Promote community among graduate students in our Faculty.
  2. Improve the student experience (through support, and both social and academic events).
  3. Help students access the information they need to navigate the graduate journey.
  4. Advocate on behalf of our students.

In order to fulfill our aims, we have an Executive and strike committees that organize specific events, such as grad nights, intramural sports, retreats, invited speakers, and workshops.
We encourage all students to participate and get involved!
