Your 2015-16 Graduate Student Representatives

Dear Graduate Students,

A number of your peers represent your interests within the Department and the College. Please feel free to contact your representatives to share your concerns, interests, and suggestions.

2015-2016 Graduate Student Senate (GSS)
Jackson Martin (MA, sport management)

The GSS is the branch of the Student Government Association (SGA) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, that deals exclusively with graduate and professional student concerns. We serve as the voice of the graduate student body and are the organization to which university administrators turn when graduate student input is needed. The GSS is composed of graduate student representatives, duly selected from within their department or program, and offers participants an opportunity to serve their respective programs by promoting its interests on a campus-wide scale.

You can find out more about GSS here:

2015-16 Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Board
Patrick Smith (MA, therapeutic recreation)
Leslie Larson (PhD, sport psychology and motor behavior)

Members of the board play a critical role in improving the experience for graduate students in the college. Graduate students on the board meet with the Dean two times a semester, attend campus and college events on behalf of CEHHS and plan the annual research colloquium. Each department has two board seats.
