Meeting Minutes

Resolutions that reflect the opinions and priorities of graduate students are passed at GSC open meetings. At these meetings: the GSC Executive Board and Committee Chairs report on issues of concern to graduate students; GSAS students have the occasional opportunity to meet and question administrators; issues of concern to different constituencies are raised. All GSAS students are encouraged to participate and voice their opinions and concerns at the GSC open meetings. Some of the issues raised at the meetings recently include support for expanded parental leave and the formation of accessible daycare opportunities for student parents, updates to Title IX policies that affect the entire student body, and the need for more student participation in an undergraduate-dominated IT systems modifications. The GSC advocates for students to the GSAS Deans, but we encourage GSAS students to become more involved in advocating for themselves. The GSC can help give voice to change, and open meetings are an excellent opportunity to build support around issues most pressing to you.

In order to request an issue be placed on the meeting's agenda, please email the President ( 2 weeks in advance of the next open meeting.
