Graduate Student Council (GSC) Academic and At-Large Representatives for 2015-16

The Seattle University Graduate Student Council (GSC) is looking for two academic representatives from the School of Law and at-large representatives (at-large positions have included: parent-student, international, veterans, access & ability, doctoral, and multicultural representatives) for the 2015-16 school year.  This is a great opportunity to network with other graduate students and get connected into the larger picture of what is happening at Seattle U.
 GSC's mission is to improve the graduate student experience at Seattle U by communicating the needs and ideas of the graduate student body to the University. The GSC advocates for services that better meet the needs of students in all seven colleges of the university.

Academic and at-large representatives serve as a direct connection between their academic school/college (academic representatives) or a specific graduate student population (at-large representatives) and the GSC, accurately conveying the needs of the student population. Representatives are expected to cultivate mutually beneficial relationships with their school/college Dean’s office, faculty, and graduate student organizations. They will attend monthly GSC “All-Council” meetings and GSC events; attend retreats, in-service workshops, and council development activities; serve as liaison between the GSC and a specific graduate student population; serve and actively participate on GSC Committees, as needed; and represent the council to student, University administration, faculty, and other constituencies. These positions require a time commitment of approximately 5 hours per month and periodic availability during business hours. 

If interested, email the GSC president at GSCChair@Seattleu.eduAlso, find out how you can involved at the October GSC meeting, Tuesday, October 20th, 4:30 - 6:00 pm, Pigott 103 (free pizza!).
