GSA Committee Rally / Ice Cream Social

Date: 9/3/13

Time: 11:00am – 2:00pm 

Looking to get involved by not sure where to start? Have a question for GSA? Really like iced coffee, ice cream and snacks? This event is for you! Come meet your current GSA officers, kick off the new semester, and learn how to get involved on campus, all while enjoying some iced treats and snacks!

Most committees on campus have a graduate student representative. Filling these positions is essential to having the grad student voice heard across campus. Committees range across all kinds of topics, from dining to parking to space planning. Commitments range from minimal (once a semester) to more intensive (twice a month). Committees can be a great experience (and a CV line!).

Time: 3:00pm – 5:00pm 

Graduate students that volunteered and signed-up to participate as representation for the graduate student community for an on-campus committee were invited to attend a training session during the fall semester. Current Graduate Student Association (GSA) members select past committee members and Vice-Chancellor Jane Lawrence discussed the importance of committee work, the purpose, and what is expected, in addition to other important information.
