Department Representatives

Department Representatives are elected by their respective home department. Each department is allotted a particular number of graduate students, based on the graduate student population. They represent the needs and voice of graduate students from their home department, sit on GSG meetings, and have voting rights to decisions made by GSG.

Standing committees listed are for internal GSG use only. Please contact the Principal Officers or the Committee Chairs with any questions relevant to Committees.
