General Council

The GRO General Council shall be responsible for determining all GRO policies, designating representatives to all relevant university committees, and monitoring the implementation of all GRO decisions.

The legislative body, or GRO General Council (GC) is made up of both graduate student representatives from every department on the Homewood campus and the Executive Board members. Department representatives are selected independently by students within a department in a way that is up to the students of that department. The GC decides on most matters within the scope of the GRO. It approves or denies student group event funding and/or recognition, approves the budget and GRO policy, debates graduate student needs, both academic and social, and disseminates information to the graduate community.
