The Presidential Search Continues...Without Student Involvement!

On October 15, the Graduate Student Assembly along with the Student Government Exec and the Student Senate, issued an open call through The Tartan to the Board of Trustees, expressing our displeasure on students being excluded from the Presidential Search Committee. More than four months later, we are writing to share our continued and increasing disappointment about this policy of active exclusion. The only thing more unfortunate than the lack of student representation has been the silence the Board has adopted and an implicit refusal to reform in the future.

An Open Note Concerning the Activities Fee

Undergraduates and graduates will have the opportunity to vote online Nov 8th-10th (link to vote: http://bit.ly/PwPBtA) as to whether they want to raise the Student Activities Fee by 25% from $97/semester to $121/semester. GSA has not initiated this referendum and does not necessarily support a fee increase, but we do view this as an opportunity to gather feedback from the graduate student community at large.

GSA Contributes $175,000 to University Endowment

At our regularly scheduled meeting last night, the Graduate Studen Assembly (GSA) decided to contribute $175,000 from our Capital Reserve to the CMU endowment. This is a testament to both the strength of our graduate student body and its leadership. I venture to say that nowhere else in the world is another student government wrestling with such significant decisions that can impact their university communities to such a high degree.
