The Graduate Student Senate is composed of elected officers and senators. Senators are elected by each constituency. Officers are elected campus wide each year.
If your department does not have a senator, you can hold a meeting and vote for a representative! Senators can be elected by all graduate students in your department or program, either as part of a departmental meeting, or online.
Being a Senator does not require a large time commitment, and it provides a great opportunity to get involved in serving the graduate student community. The primary responsibilities of GSS Senators are:
- Attend GSS meetings to discuss and vote on graduate student issues.
- Serve as a liaison between GSS and graduate students in their department or program.
- Help set an agenda for GSS that reflects the academic, professional and student-life concerns of graduate students in their department or program
