GSA Wants YOU!


On behalf of the Graduate Student Association, welcome back to campus! My name is Brett Powell and I am the new President of the Graduate Student Association for 2014-2015 and I’m looking forward to working with everyone this year!

First and foremost, I want to invite all of our graduate students on campus to attend the Graduate Student Association (GSA) meeting on Friday, September 5.  Meetings begin at 5:00 pm and are held in Room 409 of the Stern Center. This is our first monthly meeting of the semester and we encourage everyone to be in attendance as we will be making important announcements about upcoming events, campus involvement, and funding opportunities for students and organizations. Did I mention that there will be pizza? So, be sure to mark your calendars for Friday the 5th and come share a slice while meeting fellow graduate students and learning all about how to get involved on campus and throughout the community!

GSA is also still in need of candidates to fill two positions on our executive board for the 2014-2015 school year. Students interested in running for Vice President or Secretary of GSA should be present at the meeting to declare their interest in the position. To expedite the process of completing our executive board, candidates should come to the September 5th meeting prepared to stand up and introduce themselves and give a brief statement about their interest in the position. Candidates will require one nomination from the graduate students present at the meeting before being considered for candidacy. We will then vote on the candidates in accordance with the bylaws during the meeting. The duties required of each position can be found in Section 5 and 7 respectively in the GSA Constitution.

In addition to electing officers, we will also be organizing our committees at the September 5 meeting, so if you’re a new graduate student and still want to get involved with campus and community life, this is the perfect opportunity for you!

I look forward to seeing everyone at our meeting and can’t wait for what the year ahead holds for the Graduate School and GSA!

For any questions regarding our upcoming meeting, elections, or any other concerns, email!
