Joining the GSB

At the beginning of the Fall semester, the GSB will hold elections for it's new officers. The GSB will send out an email describing each position and soliciting self-nominations for all positions. If you want to join GSB, send an email to GSB with your name and the position you would to have. Any contested positions will go to an election by the graduate students. Even if you don't get the position to you, you can still be a member of GSB and can help in whatever way you like (modulo not getting the way of the elected officers' duties).

Contact

If you have questions about anything related to the department or graduate school in general, send mail to GSB. We will do our best to help you.
