Ms. Min Yang
Dear new and returning graduate students,
Welcome to Memorial University of Newfoundland! You are now part of a dynamic and
creative graduate student community. My name is Min Yang, and I am honored to serve you
as your Executive Director of Academic at the Graduate Students’ Union (GSU).
We are delighted to welcome you into the community that supports your academic success,
professional development, and personal wellbeing. By building connections between you
and School of Graduate Studies, we support you in your desire to advocate for your rights –
beyond the academic issues in your graduate degree program – as well as to your future
As your ED Academic, I encourage you to take advantage of GSU’s resources like seeking
consultation and assistance from us to solve your academic issues, and joining programs on
how to maintain good supervisor-student relationships. I invite you to participate in our
academic nights that will both help you forge your path and connect you with others from
different countries and disciplines. Besides, you will find additional resources to help you
succeed in your graduate studies. Workshops targeting thesis/article writing, seeking out
employment opportunities and mental health maintaining will be held.
I would like to wish you all the best in your studies at Memorial. We are here to make sure
that you will have the best possible experience and reach your maximum potential in your
field. We look forward to seeing you on campus. If you have any concerns, please do not
hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
