Graduate School and
The University of Arkansas Graduate Dean's Student Advisory Board serves as a forum for voicing graduate student ideas and concerns about pertinent university issues and, more fundamentally, exists to enhance communication between graduate students, faculty, and administration throughout the university.
The GDSAB will be composed of representatives, from each of the university's trans-departmental graduate and international student organizations (Black Graduate Student Association, Associated Student Government, Latino/a and Latin American Graduate Student Association, International Students Organization and Liaison for LGBT Issues) and two representatives nominated from each of the University of Arkansas colleges administering graduate degrees through the Graduate School:
Graduate students who are nominated for the GDSAB should exemplify the following characteristics:
Members of the GDSAB are graduate students who have demonstrated a commitment to the long and short-term success of the University of Arkansas.
Members of the GDSAB are men and women of their word who take seriously the responsibility of representing their classmates and colleagues to the university administration.
Members of the GDSAB are excellent students who have performed consistently well in classroom and research activities.
Members of the GDSAB are individuals who have demonstrated leadership in their departments and colleges.
Members of the GDSAB are graduate students who represent the full spectrum of backgrounds and interests of the university community. The GDSAB values diversity in all its forms and as a body desires to reflect the diversity of graduate students in terms of academic disciplines, degree programs, races, nationalities, disabilities, sexual preferences, and gender.
Members of the GDSAB are individuals who are creative problem solvers and enjoy developing novel approaches to complex problems and issues.
At the first meeting of the GDSAB during the fall of each academic year, two representatives will be elected from those present to represent the graduate student body as voting members of the Graduate Council.
The GDSAB will meet once per month, with adjustments for holiday breaks and summer.
