  1. There are a number of vacant positions. Is there a possibility of fulfilling them this year? If so, what is the process?

    • The process is supposed to begin with the Chair of your department OR with the graduate student organization in your program. We realize not all departments or programs at TWU have graduate student organizations. That’s why we have attempted to go through the chairs and program advisors.

      Long story short, we would love to have you join us. We do not currently have a senator representing your program. We do have our first meeting this afternoon beginning at 4:00. Would you be able to make the meeting? I will forward to you the information our vice chair sent out to other senators.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

      We look forward to you participating as a senator in GSC!

      ~ Tawny
