CoE Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GSAC)
Member Term Policy
Below are the guidelines for the GSAC members:
- There will be a two-year term limit. At the end of two years, if a student wishes to remain active in GSAC, he/she will be evaluated, and a decision will be made as to whether the position can be kept.
- GSAC members must be willing to attend their department’s graduate advisory council meetings and report the discussion back to GSAC.
- GSAC members are expected to help host a couple of workshops/events each year.
- You are the voice for all the students in your department, so attendance is imperative. Any member who does not attend at least 4 of the 6 GSAC meetings in a given year will be sent a warning that he/she will be removed if attendance and/or participation is not improved. If improvement is not seen, the member will be replaced. If there is a valid conflict with the scheduled meetings, special permission may be requested to miss those meetings.
- A member can choose to leave at any time.
- For a vacancy either for a specific department or a key graduate student society, GSAC members and the department/society will be asked to nominate a new student. Of the nominations made, the Coordinator of Graduate Programs will make the final decision as to whom will fill the seat.
