Seeking Graduate Students for Graduate Student Association Leadership Position

Are you interested in spending up to 2-3 hours/week (30 hours each term), winter and spring 2014, on a small interdisciplinary leadership team to create and lead the new graduate student association, and receiving a leadership stipend of $450 per term to defray the cost of your graduate education?

The Graduate School Student Advisory Board has identified graduate student governmental representation, creation of a more interdisciplinary graduate student community, and graduate student funding for research and travel as current needs that might be well served through a graduate student association that is recognized by, and interacts with, the Associated Students of the University of Oregon (ASUO). 

The Graduate School is looking for 1-3 graduate students to serve as student leaders who will lay the groundwork for such an association during the remainder of the 2013-14 academic year.

This team of graduate student association leaders will:

·         Look at best practices of other graduate student associations and data from a spring 2013 UO graduate student governance survey to create the association’s mission and purpose.

·         Draft bylaws and an organizational structure for the association, and complete the application process to become an ASUO-recognized student group.

·         Develop a fundraising plan, identify internal and external partners, draft a budget and ASUO funding proposal.

·         Help identify and participate in 1-2 graduate student events that foster graduate student community and promote the new association.

E-mail Kyle Reynolds at by January 15 if you are interested in learning more or applying to be a leader in this association.
