Social Sciences Senator
Congratulations to Darold Cuba, who will continue in his capacity as Social Sciences Senator after winning the senate seat by acclamation. Here is his nomination statement: 

"As your current Social Sciences senator I plan to continue to represent and serve you, your interests and concerns at the University's policy-making body, and invite you to help us with establishing the "Columbia University Senate at 50" Taskforce & Report on the 50 years of the senate's existence as it birthday comes up in May. As an Oral History Masters candidate, I'm also spearheading the Oral History Project for the Taskforce and invite your participation. Born and raised in a military family in tidewater Virginia, I'm a "recovering" journalist and producer (NYT, VICE, TriBeCa Enterprises) with a bachelors in Theatre, studying the "freedom colonies" that resisted Western colonialism and capturing their stories for my thesis. Ever at your service, please contact me at anytime: darold.cuba@columbia"

John Jay and CUMC Healthcare Survey
ASGC and GSO are circulating a brief healthcare survey to gauge the demand for access to healthcare facilities at the campus where a student's department is not housed—that is, for access to John Jay among CUMC students and for access to CUMC medical services among GSAS students. Please help us get a clear sense of the breadth of interest by filling out this survey, which will take less than two minutes to complete. 

The next ASGC Student Travel Grant deadline is April 26.
This deadline is for acceptance letters received between January 18th - April 26th, 2019.
Please click here for more details and the application.

Our final 2018-19 plenary meeting will be on Tuesday, April 30 at 6:30pm in 301 Philosophy Hall.

Follow us on Facebook or check out our website for more updates and information. Plenary agendas and minutes.

ASGC is composed of MA & PhD students from GSAS departments and is the main successor of the Graduate Student Advisory Council (GSAC). All affiliate departments are encouraged to designate a Department Representative to participate in plenary meetings. Department Representatives vote on ASGC initiatives and policy changes as well as serve as liaisons between their departments and ASGC.

Please reach out to your current Department Representative to discuss matters you would like to see ASGC raise or, if the position is vacant, consider becoming a representative yourself.
