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

Special Announcements/Events and Invitations

The Graduate Student Advisory Committee works to keep you informed regarding GSAC, The Graduate College, and other Campus events pertinent to your career as a Western Michigan University Graduate Students.

In our January 2014 meeting the graduate students present voted to accept a resolution for a name change. Effective July 1, 2014, The Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GSAC) will transition to its new name The Graduate Student Association (GSA). The Constitution and By- Laws will also reflect some structural change as well. Please see under the Resolution bullet the wording that was accepted by the body in January 2014 meeting.
