Grad Students: Opportunity to become a member of the IUSA Funding Board

Dear graduate students,

The IUSA Funding Board is currently seeking board members for next year. This board is responsible for allocating the student activities fees we pay each semester to student organization initiatives. Funding Board represents the voice of all students across campus and needs graduate student representation. There are many graduate student organizations on campus who request and receive funds from IUSA Funding Board; as such, having active graduate students on the board to advocate for our symposia and conferences, professional development, and other educational events is quite important.

The board is comprised of 11 regular voting members and 4 alternates and meets for 2-3 hours (beginning at 7pm) on Wednesday evenings during the semester. If you are interested in learning more about student activities and student self-governance or want to participate in the political processes of your campus, please read below and apply!

Forward to your grad program list-servs!

Thanks for your consideration,
