UAH Internet Survey
In March of 2018, GSAS informed its PhD students that "students residing in university housing will have internet service paid for by the school." It has come to the attention of ASGC that this commitment has not been fulfilled for all doctoral students. Dean Alonso has informed us that GSAS is working with UAH to install Columbia internet in all buildings within the next 18 months, and that doctoral students will receive free internet service as Columbia internet is installed in their buildings.

To determine how widespread this issue is, which buildings are affected, and how swiftly the problem is being addressed, the Quality of Life committee of ASGC is conducting a survey—for GSAS PhD students in university housing only. Please complete the survey at your earliest convenience.

Interested in becoming a Department Representative?  A few PhD and MA positions are STILL OPEN. Departments must have a representative to remain in good standing and eligible for ASGC funding.

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.
