Senate Committees

Joining a committee is a great way to get involved with Graduate Student life on campus! While senators are required to be on a committee, any graduate student can join a committee and participate. If you’d like to learn more about what committees do and how to get involved, contact the Internal Vice President at gsointernalvp@syr.edu. Below are the official charges to each of our standing committees.

If you are interested in joining a committee, please fill out this form. The Internal Vice President will get in touch with you regarding your request.


Standing Committees

Standing Committees are those committees in active standing and are available for senators and graduate students to join.

AD-HOC Committees

Ad-Hoc committees are utilized as needed in accordance with Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised moving forward. Ad-Hoc committees can become active/standing based on need and senate decision (Please see GSO Resolution 22.04 for more information).
