Communication Graduate Caucus (CGC)

We are very lucky to have such an active group of graduate students. The Communication Graduate Caucus (CGC) is the collective body of Communication Masters and PhD students. Each year our graduate students stage a flagship annual conference that attracts participants from across Canada and abroad to serve as an excellent opportunity to present their research and get feedback from faculty. Find out more on their website.
