GSO Elections 2014


Description:

The GSO Assembly is a representative body, with each graduate program receiving a vote.

The Assembly meets monthly.

Agenda are made available one week before the meeting.

Assembly meetings are open to the public.

GSO Assembly graduate program representatives or representative alternates are to participate in the GSO Assembly monthly meetings and keep their constituents informed of GSO activities.

GSO Assembly graduate program representatives must review all and every grant proposals before graduate students applications can be approved.

Failure for a graduate program representative (or representative alternate) to participate in the monthly Assembly meeting will result in all grants proposals originating from graduate students in her or his program to be set aside for review at a later date; specifically, until the representative or the representative alternate is available to participate in the review process at a subsequent GSO Assembly meeting.

The list below is not complete. If your department representative is not there, try to contact your department Graduate Chair, who is a faculty member and let us know! Mahalo.
