Graduate Student Coordinating Committee

The GSCC is comprised of psychology graduate students (see the2012-2013 list) motivated to represent their fellow students in department-wide issues. Student elections for the GSCC representatives are held annually. The GSCC provides up to 3 votes in faculty meetings and is primarily in charge of the distribution of travel funds to other graduate students in the Psychology Department. Other major responsibilities include the organization of orientation for new students, planning faculty candidate lunches, and training the new GSCC elects. All psychology graduate students are welcome to attend.

Meetings and minutes

The GSCC attends the faculty, graduate coordinator and director's meetings. In addition the GSCC meets once a month. You can find when and where these meetings happen by contacting us.

Please share your thoughts on topics that we will be discussing with your program representatives or any other GSCC members. Additionally, if you would like us to talk about an issue you can contact the president and request that it be placed on the agenda.

GSCC Travel Funds

The GSCC has some funding available for students traveling to Professional Conferences. To see eligibility requirements or to submit an application for funding, please visit the GSCC Travel Funds page.

The GSCC Service Award

This award may be given to one particularly motivated graduate student who stands out in his/her service to the department. The recipient of the GSCC Service Award must be nominated by fellow students. A plaque is given to the recipient paid for with GSCC funds at the end of the semester awards ceremony.

GSCC Newsletter

The GSCC regularly releases a newsletter.

Procedures for complaints and concerns

We understand that most people don't often register formal complaints, so we would like to extend the grievance process to include general concerns as well as specific issues that people may have. For more information, please visit the complaint/concern page.
