The U of A Graduate and Professional Student Congress cordially invites all graduate and professional students to the April Policy Dialogue themed "An Hour Interaction with Chancellor Robinson," scheduled for 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, at Bell Engineering 2269 and on Zoom.

Policy Dialogue is a forum where graduate and professional students interface with university administrators/experts to discuss pertinent topics that affect their wellbeing and success on campus. It is also an opportunity for GPSC members to explore possible areas of partnerships with campus organizations/units to improve service delivery and graduate students' experience.

In addition, this event presents a unique opportunity for our graduate and professional student community to engage directly with Chancellor Robinson on matters of policy, strategy and vision for our university. During this hour-long session, participants will have the chance to ask questions, share perspectives and discuss key issues that impact our academic experience and campus life.

Moderator: Krystle Merry, GPSC secretary.

The Graduate and Professional Student Congress encourages all students to join GPSC for this insightful and engaging dialogue. Your participation and input are invaluable as we work together to shape the future of our university community.
