About Us

GASA is made up of approximately 50 graduate students from the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Toronto.

We represent student interests in the department and promote public service through our outreach programs. Academically, we help coordinate short seminar courses (“mini-courses”) on specialized topics in stellar astronomy, galactic astronomy, and cosmology.
