Description of current GSAC sub-committees

Co-chairs As chairs of the Graduate Student Advisory Committee, the co-chairs are the first people contacted to speak for the graduate students in the math department. You may be asked to sit on committees where representation from graduate students is needed.
Retention, Promotion and Tenure Make recommendations to the Department concerning promotion, tenure and retention of faculty members.
Graduate Colloquium Organize speakers for the GSAC colloquium and advertise these talks.
GSNACS (Refreshments) The GSAC colloquium has $50 a week for colloquium snacks. The GSNACS committee organizes these snacks: either getting them, or delegating to other graduate students.
Recruitment Organizes visiting weekend, including what activities will be available, matching prospective students to graduate student hosts, setting up meetings, etc.
Graduate Student Life Committee Planning math graduate student community events. Last year, these included a hike, a dinner, and a gift exchange.
Intramural Sports Organizing math graduate student intramural teams, such as basketball, inner tube water polo, soccer, kayak battleship, etc.
Web page maintenance Keeps the GSAC webpage updated and functional. This mainly consists in updating the colloquium page. At the beginning of new academic years, the contact page also needs to be updated. Our GSAC Webpage can be a great opportunity to spread information and awareness about grad student initiatives.
