GSA Council Meetings are held monthly. The schedule for the 2014-15 GSA Council meetings is not yet confirmed.

The GSA Council Handbook is a great resource for members.

All meetings are open to the public and graduate students are always welcome to attend. Students who wish to bring a matter to the board's attention are asked to contact the GSA office 7 days in advance of the meeting, so their issue may be added to the agenda.

You can view the GSA Council Meeting Agendas and Minutes under the GSA Council Resources tab.
