The Spring 2015 elections are for the legislative branch of the Graduate Student Government. This branch is comprised of Senators representing all academic departments. Mandatory Senate Meetings are held every Tuesday at 11 am and generally last an hour to an hour and a half. These meetings are the minimal commitment, but there are many opportunities to get more involved!
Historically, the Senate elections are not very competitive, so please do not let that prevent you from applying! Former Senators are welcome to apply. We would love to have you back. Current Senators do not have to reapply for the Spring election
To be considered as a candidate for Graduate Student Senator you must complete and submit either the online application OR the election packet by FRIDAY, January 9th at 4PM in the SGA office.
IMPORTANT: If you use the online application, you should see a message and receive a confirmation email once you have submitted your entry. If you do not get one, the entry has not been registered; please try again. Should you experience further technical difficulties, please contact the Elections Director.
The SGA Office is located in the Student Center Commons across from Subway.
The Graduate Student Government Elections Code is included as an addendum to this packet. Read the entire document and be familiar with it.
For elections campaigning, violations, or inquires about the election process and procedures, please contact the Elections Director, Giang Nguyen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck in the upcoming elections for Graduate Student Government!
