Governance of the GSC

The GSC is run by two entities, the Facilities Manager and the GSC Governace Board (GSCGB). The Facilties Manager is responsible for day-to-day management of the GSC, while the GSCGB enacts usage policies of the GSC. The GSCGB is composed primarily of graduate students --- there are at least seven voting positions for graduate students (including the Chair and Vice-Chair). There are also voting positions for staff, faculty, and undergraduates (one position each), to ensure that the GSCGB takes the entire campus into consideration when making decisions. If you are interested in serving on the GSCGB, please contact the Graduate Commons on our contact page.
