GSA Council Representation

The GSA President is responsible for representing graduate students in the Student Representative Council and to the campus community. The GSA President is a member of the Student Senate, and he/she is the director of the GSA budget.

The GSA College Representatives work with the GSA President to provide college-specific activities and contacts within each college. These people are your direct link to the administration and student government. An essential task of the College Representatives is to identify graduate students who can participate in campus committees. These committees help shape the University and even determine the amount of funding the GSA receives in the student fee allocation process. The College Representatives are unpaid volunteers, but their efforts are recognized by the Dean of the Graduate School and the Student Representative Council. Ideally, there are at least two representatives, preferably from different programs, from each college.
