Represent EECB at the University level by serving on the Graduate Student Association (GSA) Council
Have you ever considered participating in GSA's student government? EECB is an interdisciplinary program under the leadership of the Dean of the Graduate School and does not reside within any one college, however EECB graduate students are eligible and encouraged to run for election within their respective college.
Time commitment: Elected representatives meet from 7 to 9 p.m. every other Tuesday, from the first Tuesday after classes begin until the last Tuesday before prep day. Representatives are also asked to serve on GSA committees and University faculty committees, some of which only meet once a semester or for a short time each year.
Perks: GSA representatives are not paid, but earn valuable leadership experience to put on their CV. The GSA President earns a full 20-hour graduate assistant stipend, and each of the two Vice Presidents (Internal and External), earn 10-hour graduate assistant stipends. With approval, this can be in addition to your research or teaching assistantship.
An EECB student serving on GSA Council would benefit fellow EECB students by:
- Serving as a liaison between program students, faculty, and the Graduate School.
- Alerting students and faculty to relevant issues and events.
- Connecting students with resources and funding opportunities.
