Graduate Student Advisory Committee
"Promoting the Legacy and Integrity Through Graduate Student Success"

Fellow Graduate Students

Hello, and Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year!

We, Damon Chambers and Rebecca R. Sametz, are excited to introduce ourselves as your Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson of the Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GSAC).

The Graduate Student Advisory Committee is an organization of and for graduate students at Western Michigan University. Membership consists of student representatives from each Department with a graduate program. GSAC's primary function is as liaison between University administration and graduate students, providing direct communication regarding policy change, programming, and student concerns.

We believe that it is by working together with you that we will be able to excel in our mission to represent you and advocate for all graduate students at WMU. I hope that you will use the power of your voice: contact me with suggestions for improving GSAC; reach out to us if you have issues that you’d like to be addressed; attend our meetings or events; become an active member and add your talents to our GSAC family. Together we can elevate the condition of graduate students at WMU and make WMU a better place.

Please take some time to visit our Events/Announcements page to be up to date with all activities which may be of interest to you. We also invite you to join our discussions on : facebook, twitter , and gsac blog.

We look forward to getting to know each of you. Thank you for your support, and we hope you have an excellent experience during your study at WMU.

Sincerely yours,
