IGB Group Recognition
If anyone wants to be recognized officially by the Interschool Governing Board (IGB), please direct them to the following link: https://www.cc-seas.columbia.edu/studentlife/groupres/governance/governingboards/IGB

Please note that we accept student groups that are in the spirit of the IGB mission statement, which includes "representing and serving the needs of Columbia University student interschool organizations whose membership and mission is interschool in nature and includes a combination of graduate and undergraduate professional schools, groups and students who do not fall under the immediate jurisdiction of other governing boards or individual school councils."

There are no numerical or percentage requirements of group membership for IGB recognition, but the board reserves the right to approve or deny recognition based on the above mission statement.

The deadline to apply for recognition this semester is March 1, 2017.

Getting involved with GSAC

If you would like to become involved with GSAC, please consider becoming a Department Representative. Department Representatives are a department’s voice on GSAC. They serve as voting members of the plenary (steering committee members are nonvoting), in addition to serving on committees where much of the policy and decisions are deliberated and GSAC’s plans are executed. Many GSAS departments do not currently have a representative. See here for a list of vacant positions.
