How To Get Involved?
Anyone can become involved in the GSC. The most common ways are to:
Attend a GSC Event
Read our GSC Calendar and read the GSC Review, which is e-mailed to you weekly during the school year. Both the Calendar and Review contain information about social opportunities, important GSC meetings, professional development opportunities, and other events specific to graduate students like you!
Attend a meeting
The best way to learn about the GSC is to attend a General Assembly Meeting. Meetings occur on the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30pm in Adelbert Hall, 2nd Floor, Toepfer Room. You can see our meeting schedule on the GSC Calendar. All are welcome to come to our meetings. General Assembly meetings are a great way to hear directly from students like you - if you have a problem or think the University can do something better, this is a great time to let us know! See what we have discussed in past meetings here.
Join a Committee
GSC initiatives/projects are advanced in GSC Committees. Where the real work of the Council occurs, committees create social and professional development activities, advance mentoring within the university, assess the health care environment at CWRU, improve graduate student compensation, and reform/improve University policies. Our committees are listed below:
Social and Special Programs Committee | Chair: Daniel Burns
Public Relations | Chair: Leah Plasek
Academic Affairs | Chair: Sahil Gulati
Professional Development Committee | Chair: Andrew Schilb
Student Life | Chair: Zoe Yang
Diversity and Inclusion | Chair: Brandon Benjamin
Become a Representative
Every School/College is allotted 5-8 Representatives who voice the needs of graduate students in their program. Representatives should communicate and reach out to their fellow graduate students. They report findings to the General Assembly meetings. To find out who your Representatives are and how to become one, contact your School/College government or e-mail the GSC Internal Communications Officer.
