“The [GSS cIRcle] Open Scholar Award is an excellent representation of both UBC and its graduate students’ dedication to showcasing our unique intellectual output. It gives graduate students an opportunity to showcase their knowledge outside of their normal networks while encouraging the spirit of collaboration and interdisciplinarity.” – Christopher Roach, GSS President (2013-14)
