Graduate Senators

Last Updated 4/16/2019.


The Graduate Senate (a part of the GSA) has changed the way that its senators are selected. The next round of graduate senators to the UMBC Graduate Senate will serve from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. Remuneration is offered to these graduate senators for their time spent representing graduate students.


These graduate senators will be selected from a pool of graduate student applicants. The successful applicant will be expected to find a faculty member and four graduate students to voice support for the applicant as a graduate senator. The applicant will also be asked for a brief statement of interest. The application can be found below (or here). Applications are due by May 1, 2019.


Linked here is the memo from the 2018-2019 GSA Executive Council highlighting this new method of representation as well as general expectations of graduate senators.


We understand that this process is new, and we are more than happy to answer any questions concerning this change. Feel free to email the GSA at or submit an anonymous comment via an online form located here.
