One of the most effective ways graduate students can contribute to the University of South Florida and influence policy making is through participation on university-wide councils and committees. The core of self-governance at the University of South Florida is comprised of these councils and committees. The committees and councils are an integral part of university administration. The GPSC encourages you to serve on one of these committees or councils.
A list and descriptions of these councils and committees may be obtained by clicking on the following link: http://www.sa.usf.edu/main/groups.asp
Committees the GPSC Officers Serve On
Student Insurance Committee
This committee is responsible for addressing the issues related to student health insurance provided at the university, particularly making an affordable health insurance policy for all USF students.
Student Technology Advisory Council
This committee is responsible for addressing technology-related issues of interest to USF students. The council acts to advise and make recommendations about requirements and priorities of technology issues to the Vice President for Information Technology. The input may go before the University Technology Standards board and/or the Information Technology Management Council.
