The Graduate Student Senate forms committees to allow Senators to work on new events, solutions, and opportunities for the graduate student body more efficiently. Below, find a description of the current committees and the Senators involved in each committee.
Graduate Student Outreach Committee
The Graduate Student Outreach Committee is responsible for serving as the primary group focused on communication with the graduate student body. While it is the responsibility of all individual Senators to communicate with their constituents, this committee will also facilitate communication with the graduate student body and Senate as a whole. Some projects currently being discussed include: making Senate procedures more transparent and digestible to the entire student body, making communication with the graduate student body more effective, and issues pertaining to diversity and inclusion.
Chair: Senator Will Reichard
