The GSS Constitution defines the rights, responsibilities, and structure of the GSS. It was signed by President Huddleston in 2011, officially recognizing the GSS as the voice of the graduate student body at UNH.
Our bylaws detail how the GSS conducts business, the rights and responsibilities of our officers, senators, and general members, and our election process.
Official communications from the GSS take the form of resolutions or official statements. These communications are discussed and approved by the voting membership of the GSS at our regular meetings.
