The GAB is charged with conveying graduate student needs – personal, professional and academic – programming ideas and policy concerns to the UGS. While the Graduate Student and Professional Committee (GPSC) is the recognized advocacy group for graduate students at FIU, the UGS would like input from an array of students and disciplines. It is imperative that we have feedback from a representative cross-section of the graduate student community.
The structure for the GAB includes student representation from GPSC and diverse academic disciplines. There is no executive board, appointed positions or hierarchy; this is truly an advisory board.
The Graduate Student Advisory Board will meet monthly. At the first meeting, a schedule of meetings will be decided.
