Graduate Student Council
The Graduate Student Council (GSC) represents the interest of the GSA student body in academic, residential, and administrative matters that directly affect gradaute students. Various issues related to graduate student will be the focus of the GSA agenda.
The Council is composed of representatives nominated from each of the graduate programs. Representatives act as liaisons between their departments and the Council as a whole. This Council will also be used to consult with various committees and other administrative processes on campus.
Through monthly meetings, open discussion, and committee work, the council sets its policy and working goals. Nominated memebers of the GSC have full rights to take part in the Council by attending and participating in these monthly meetings.
As part of its role of representing UALR’s graduate students, the GSC plans and helps the GSA host events throughout the year. These events include, but not limited to, workshops, recruitment (GREATS), and Research Expo.
As part of its role of representing the GSA student before the Graduate School and the Univeristy, the GSC elects student representatives to attend the Graduate Council (GC) and to work for its two sub-committees (personnel sub committee and curriculum sub committee). The GSC memebers that attend the GC will provide feedback to the GSC from the meetings about issues that concern graduate students.
