The Education Graduate Students’ Society (EGSS) of McGill University offers an invaluable resource for all graduate students in the Faculty of Education. This open and free society not only provides a welcoming environment for graduate students to come together to share insights, expertise and fellowship, but also, it provides a vehicle for the collective voice of the graduate student body to be recognized and respected throughout the Faculty of Education. The EGSS seeks to augment the graduate student experience by making available the necessary information, activities, resources and opportunities for an extraordinary student life. The EGSS is committed to work within an anti-oppressive framework by fostering inclusivity, member participation and executive transparency.
The 2018 EGSS Conference theme is "Let’s Get Learning: The Importance of Mental Health and Well-being in Education". Through this conference, EGSS aims is to promote the importance of positive mental health and well-being practices in education by creating a platform for students, educators, and researchers to integrate perspectives from kinesiology, education, and psychology across the Faculty of Education and beyond.
