AGES was instituted in 1998 by a group of graduate students who believed in creating a community within the Faculty of Education at UVIC. AGES aims 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 work with the Dean’s office to create a centralized resource where you can find relevant and accessible information about your degree. Also, AGES offers a variety of initiatives for graduate students, including seminars, office hours, and mentorship programs. Overall, AGES’s mission is to support education graduate students in achieving academic, personal, and career success.

The workshops, seminars and events, including the orientation and the annual AGES Conference, provide space and opportunities for networking, accessing information and building community. Get involved and discover how academic life can be more interactive and supportive! We are a community!
