Become a Department Representative

 

Becoming a department representative is a simple and effective way to serve and advocate for your fellow graduate students. In this position, you serve as the conduit between graduate students in your department and the GSC. We then take the questions/comments/concerns raised by the students in your department and bring them to the attention of the Graduate School. In return, you share important information, updates, opportunities, and social events back to the students of your department.
