Graduate Community Initiative

It's finally here: the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly has released its Graduate Community Initiative! The Initiative is a co-authored document produced by our Assembly requesting a focused and integrated approach to graduate and professional student issues at Cornell, including: an expanded student center, improved career resources for students and their spouses, and sustained attention to graduate and professional student housing. As President of the GPSA, I presented the Initiative to the Cornell Board of Trustees on Friday the 9th of March (see coverage in the Cornell Chronicle and the Daily Sun, and on Monday we hosted President Skorton at our Council of Representatives Meeting to officially present the document and discuss next steps. Based on the positive feedback we've received from University leaders -- from the Provost to the Dean of Graduate Studies -- it sounds like the document will be influential in directing university-wide policy. Go team! :)
