Chair a committee
Do you have an interest in an aspect of graduate student life that you don’t see anybody working on? Take the lead and propose a GSA committee! If your idea for a committee is approved, the GSA will appoint you as committee chair, and will help you to advertise your committee and provide funding and logistical support. Below are some examples of committees that have existed in the past.
Graduate Student Issues (Investigate and Advocate for State and National reforms that would benefit graduate students)
Community Outreach and Social Action (Plan programming that gives back to local communities around Rutgers)
International Student Affairs (Plan programming to facilitate the social, cultural, and academic growth of the international student community at Rutgers)
Sustainability (Encourage environmentally sustainable practices on campus)
Social and Cultural (Organize free cultural and social events for the graduate school community as a whole)
Movies (Organize free film screenings for graduate students in the GSL)
To propose a committee please write a brief description of the aims of the new committee to firstname.lastname@example.org along with two to three examples of events or programs that the committee might pursue.
