Structure & Representation
GSS Structure & Governance
The GSS is led by an Executive Committee comprised of six (6) elected officers. The voting membership of the GSS is comprised of fourteen (14) Senators representing each of the UNH colleges and graduate housing units. Each Senator is required to serve on at least one committee (internal or external to the GSS). All matriculated UNH graduate students are non-voting (at-large) members of the GSS.
The GSS Constitution defines the rights, responsibilities, and structure of the GSS. Our Bylaws detail how the GSS conducts business, the rights and responsibilities of our officers, senators, and general members, and our election process.
Internal GSS Committees
The GSS has several standing committees that deal with the everyday function of the GSS.
Members of the GSS represent UNH graduate students on a wide range of committees and councils across the campuses and the USNH system. Below are some of the bodies in which GSS members participate...
Campus Recreation Building Committee
Campus Recreation Outdoor Pool Oversight Committee
Campus Recreation Steering Committee
