The GSA has made large strides since our inception in 2005 to improve graduate student life at UNL.

Recent accomplishments:
1. Worked with Graduate Studies to develop a funding source for travel grants for students through departments. 
2. Worked with the Parking Advisory Committee to make monthly payment of parking passes available to graduate students.
3. Worked with the Accounts and Billing Office to allow graduate students to pay their tuition and fees monthly rather than in a lump sum.

Even so, we have a long list of initiatives and goals we hope to achieve. Some of our current tasks include:

1. Creation of a University-wide Graduate Student Bill of Rights

2. Creation of University-wide Graduate Student Leave Policies

3. Improved Graduate Student Representation on University Committees

4. Developing a clear, University-wide understanding of Graduate Student Assistant (TA and RA) employment status.

If you are interested in learning more about what GSA has accomplished and what we are working on, check out our Achievements and Internal Committees pages.

If you have any questions on these items or have new issues for us to examine, feel free to contact us at gsa@unl.edu.

Become a Legislative Assembly Representative for your Campus
Any graduate student can run for a campus representative position. These members are voted on by the legislative assembly and serve all the duties of a departmental representative and a few extra duties, like sitting on one of our committees. To see the full list of requirements and benefits of the position and whether your department is represented, visit our campus representatives page.

Serve on one of our Standing Committees
Any graduate student can serve on one of our committees to find solutions to graduate student issues or plan future GSA events. This is a great networking opportunity for graduate students across both campuses. See if there are any committees you would be interested in joining.
