Elections

While you have seen our visible aspects—this website, intramural sports, social hours, start/end of semester parties, doctoral bootcamp, etc.—there are also many behind the scenes aspects of the GSA that you might not be aware of. These include attending the Faculty Assembly, getting feedback from students for SED and the university, and generally pointing people to where the information is. Additionally, the planning and implementation of the events falls on the GSA board.

There board consists of four signatory members and three additional members:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • International Student Liaison
  • First Year Representative
  • Social Media Chair

If you are interested in being on the GSA board next year, here are the steps:

  • Read the current GSA constitution.
  • Fill out the nomination form (self-nominations okay).
  • Run a clean, honest campaign.
  • Win the election.
  • Sign the paperwork accepting the office.

What will you get out of being a member of the GSA board? Here are a few benefits:

  • Meet lots of new people in different program areas;
  • Work closely with faculty members;
  • Lunch with Dean Coleman;
  • The satisfaction of making a positive impact on the SED and BU communities.
