AGES was instituted in 1998 by a group of graduate students who believed in the need for creating a community within the Faculty of Education at UVIC. The purpose of AGES is to build a strong, inclusive, and diverse community within the faculty, share resources and information, and support graduate students on their journey to degree completion. 

As a graduate student within the Faculty, you automatically become a member of the AGES. The AGES Executive Team, volunteers, and other members worked with the Dean’s office to create a centralized resource where you can find relevant and accessible information pertaining to your degree. Also, we offer a variety of initiatives for graduate students including seminars, office hours, and mentorship programs. Overall, our mission is to provide supports for you to achieve academic, personal and career success.
