Department Representatives

Departmental Representatives can be confirmed by emailing

Primary Representative: Expected to attend monthly GSC meetings and disseminate meeting minutes and announcements to the students in your department. 

Alternate Representative: Can attend in place of the primary representative if necessary.

Representation in the GSC provides numerous benefits, including learning about the various opportunities UIC offers to graduate students and serving as a bridge between the graduate college, the university, and your department. Additionally, active participation in the GSC makes your department eligible for conference, travel, and project awards.

Attendance Policy: To ensure active representation, all representatives must adhere to the attendance policy outlined in the GSC constitution. This policy, which was not enforced since 2020 due to COVID-19, will be reinstated this year. Starting May 2024 (the beginning of Quarter 1), departments must have active representatives to be eligible for any awards. Each representative must attend at least 3 out of 4 meetings per semester.
