Graduate Association of Political Science (GAPS)


The Graduate Association of Political Science (GAPS) is a student-run organization dedicated to serving the needs of its members: all MA and PhD students in The Department of Political Science at Western. The primary aims of GAPS are to: 1) encourage the academic interests of its members, 2) foster a collegial and supportive environment within the department, and 3) elect representatives to the Department’s Graduate Committee and external organizations (SOGS and the GTA union).
