GRO General Council Meeting – TODAY (04/24/2017) 6PM Mergenthaler 111


We would like to invite all graduate students to our meetings held every other Monday evening (6 pm, Great Hall in Levering Hall) starting September, 12th, 2016.

The General Council (GC) of the Graduate Representative Organization (GRO) decides on topics that effect graduate student life on Homewood Campus (e.g. student group event funding, budget, policies, debates grad student needs) and advocates for graduate students.

Every graduate student from Homewood is allowed to attend and to ask the chairs in advance to put a topic on the agenda of the next meeting. However, only department reps and members of the executive board are allowed to vote. Therefore, it is very important that every department sends a representative so that your voices will be heard.We’d like to highlight that we advocate for every graduate student who is on Homewood Campus. It does not matter whether you have a department rep or not.

In order to apply for our travel grants, your department rep has to attend the majority of the meetings—otherwise, your department won’t be eligible for funding.

If you’re interested to join the GRO as a department rep, please send an email to our secretary .
