We welcome any graduate student who is interested in helping improve graduate student life. Involvement in the GSA provides a greater understanding of how the university operates; a chance to affect policy and thereby improve the lives of graduate students; and a way to meet people outside your department.
There are many ways that you can become involved:
1. Serve as your department’s representative: All graduate and professional departments are invited to elect one or more representatives to the GSA, depending on the size of the program enrollment (generally it is one representative for every fifty students enrolled in your department).
2. Committee membership: Serve on one of the many campus committees that need graduate student representatives.
3. Attend a meeting: Come to the General Council meetings and observe what’s going on (we always have free dinner for everyone).
