Since hitting the airwaves in 1998, UMFM 101.5FM has provided a diverse range of music and talk programming to Winnipeg, with a specific focus of serving the students here at the University of Manitoba. Though our sound has evolved over these past two decades, at its core UMFM has consistently provided our listeners with a forum for music and voices that may otherwise go unheard.
The UMGSA and UMFM also collaborate on the weekly radio show Grad Talks, which features a different graduate student every week talking about their research. You can listen to past episodes of Grad Talks here, or if you’re interested in being featured, contact Obi at firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more and to keep up to date with UMFM, visit their website, like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter and Instagram, and catch up on past episodes on SoundCloud.
A motion was initiated by UMGSA Council and passed by the University of Manitoba Board of Governors to transfer the UMGSA funds currently allocated to the Gradzette to The Manitoban. The Gradzette had not released a print issue in many years, and due to the website’s low readership, the UMGSA thought it best to reallocate the funds towards the school newspaper. The Manitoban has an extremely high readership, and we aim to secure more coverage for graduate student issues by funding the paper. We will begin featuring graduate student research on our own website in the coming months. If you have any questions about this issue, feel free to email our President.
The Gradzette is the official student magazine of the University of Manitoba’s graduate student community and is published each month by the Manitoban Newspaper Publications Corporation. The Gradzette is a democratic student organization, open to participation from all students. It exists to serve its readers as students and citizens.
The magazine’s primary mandate is to report fairly and objectively on issues and events of importance and interest to the graduate students of the University of Manitoba, to provide an open forum for the free expression and exchange of opinions and ideas, and to stimulate meaningful debate on issues that affect or would otherwise be of interest to the student body and/or society in general.
The Gradzette serves as a training ground for students interested in any aspect of journalism. Students and other interested parties are invited to contribute.
The Gradzette reserves the right to edit all submissions and will not publish any material deemed by its editorial board to be discriminatory, racist, sexist, homophobic or libelous. Opinions expressed in letters and articles are solely those of the authors.
