Name of creator
The Dalhousie Association of Graduate Students (DAGS) was founded in 1965 as the official body representing graduate students at Dalhousie University. The association's objectives include the furthering of the intellectual, political and cultural interests of its members and promoting their unity and welfare. DAGS is governed by an elected council, including a board of directors and an appointed operations officer, and is funded by fees levied on Dalhousie graduate students. DAGS owns and operates the Grad House Social Club.
Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by Alexander Ross of the Dalhousie Association of Graduate Students in accession (1994-022) in May 1994.
Scope and content
Fonds contains minutes of the Dalhousie Association of Graduate Studies as well as photographs, correspondence and other records relating to the establishment and management of the first purpose-built graduate student social facility (the Grad House).
