Hello fellow graduate and professional students,

Your WashU Graduate Professional Council will complete holding elections for the upcoming academic year (2017-18) during our next general body meeting on May 1st.

Elections are still open for the following positions: VP of Academic and Professional Development, VP of Social Programming, and VP of Marketing and Communications.

For those interested, please forward your completed intent to run (click through for form) to gpc@wustl.edu prior to our May 1st meeting. We will reconvene at the May 1st at 7pm in the Liberman Graduate Center, when candidates for each position will present brief statements about their intent and capacity for the position and then current VPs and GPC representatives will vote for each open position.

 The GSS Campus Climate Survey is up and running.  Students who participate will be entered into a raffle to receive a $25 or $50 Amazon gift card!  The survey will take 7-12 minutes, but it can be easily completed on your phone.  We would love to have as many graduate students as possible participate, as the information will be use to develop a campus climate report next Fall.
