The purpose of the Graduate Chamber is to hear concerns from graduates across the university, and effectively formulate responses to the issues. The chamber can make recommendations to various committees across campus, pushing the graduate student voice and strategic goals. Graduate Chamber is a sounding board for university policy and curriculum, and a platform to provide feedback and suggestions for changes and improvements that will benefit the graduate community.
The Graduate Chamber consists of one graduate student from each graduate program at Grand Valley, in addition to the Vice President of GSA, the two Graduate Council Representatives, and any graduate student representative sitting on a university wide committee.
Please contact the Graduate Chamber Chair, Samantha Lynn, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving as a representative for your program.
