The GSA Council is the governing body of the GSA. It consists of one voting member from each department with graduate students, and an elected Executive Board (E-Board) of officers. Department Represenatives are the voice of their departments on the GSA Council and take part in decisions on discretionary funding, GSA resolutions, and committee work. The E-Board officers recommend graduate students from the Council for appointments to university committees.
The Council meets at least three times per quarter, and all graduate students are invited to attend the meetings.
Currently, department reps are paid $100 for each quarter that they participate in the GSA Council. Grads who also serve on a campus committee are paid an additional $100 per quarter. A few committees with extensive time committments will be paid an additional sum.
