Fee Transfer to The Manitoban

The University Board of Governors has approved the transfer of UMGSA student fees from the Gradzette to The Manitoban. The Gradzette has not released a print issue for several years, and due to low readership on their website, we’ve decided that the funds would be better used by supporting The Manitoban. We hope to feature graduate student research on our website soon, and look forward to supporting one of Canada’s oldest student newspapers. If you have any questions about the fee transfer, take a look at this article, or feel free to email us.
