Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GSAC)

The Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GSAC) exists for the following reasons:
  • To advise new and continuing graduate students concerning curricula, requirements for degrees and other aspects of the graduate program.
  • To make recommendations to the Department concerning promotion, tenure and retention of faculty members.
  • To participate in the allocation of ASUU funds supplied to the College of Science Student Council.
  • To make whatever recommendations it feels appropriate concerning the graduate program to the Department of Mathematics.
  • To assist the Department in making its policies and requirements fully understood by the graduate students.

The GSAC is divided in sub-committees. Here you can find a short description of each one of them.
