Welcome back! I’m Joel Simundich and I will be serving as GSC President for 2015. I’m writing to announce the first Graduate Student Council meeting of the semester, introduce the new members of our Executive Board, as well as post a few important calls for positions.
Our first meeting will be held Wednesday, February 4th @ 7pm in the Graduate Student Lounge. The Grad Lounge is located on Thayer St. between Charlesfield St. and Power St. As usual, we will provide plenty of pizza and beer.
Please join me in welcoming the members of the new GSC Executive Board: Anni Pullagura (Vice President of Communications), Torrey Truszkowski (Nominations Officer), Benjamin Fancy (International Student Advocate), Lauren Combs (Masters’ Advocate), Lauren Watts and Anastasia Vedenko (VPs of Social Events and Student Life), and Kevin Cannon (Technology Officer)!
We’re excited to meet new students and department representatives as well as see familiar faces.
During our February 4th meeting, we will hold elections for the remaining GSC positions. Please see below for the two open positions:
Vice President of Representation and Advocacy
If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to contact me via email. If you wish to nominate yourself for a position, note that you must be present at the February 4th meeting.
We will also host an Open Forum on Sexual Harassment and Assault for Graduate Students during the meeting, in collaboration with the Sexual Assault Task Force. For more information, see the agenda; a reminder email will be sent out shortly.
In addition, the Campus Planning Advisory Board has one vacancy for a graduate student representative. Applications are due February 6th; a reminder email will be sent out shortly.
Again, if you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope everyone is safe and warm, and looking forward!
