We listen to Graduate Assistants and dialogue with the administration about any work related issues. We listen to you, we speak on behalf of you.
The Graduate Assistant Advisory Committee (GAAC aka the g double a c) was created under the University System of Maryland (USM) Meet and Confer policy. This policy facilitates formal discussions between Graduate Assistants (GA’s) and University Administration about employment issues such as compensation and benefits. For more information on what Meet and Confer go here: http://gsa.umbc.edu/files/2013/03/UMBC-Quick-Facts-about-Meet-and-Confer2.pdf
The GAAC functions independently of the GSA, providing a platform specifically for GA’s to voice their concerns. We strive to productively work and coordinate with administrators to continue a good work environment and bring about positive changes for graduate assistants. If you have any questions or an issue you would like brought to the administration’s attention, please contact us through the people tab.
