Save Dartmouth's on-campus graduate community!
The graduate student council was made aware this week that due to the very high yield rate of undergraduate admissions this year, Dartmouth does not have sufficient housing to accommodate the incoming '21s. In order to resolve this problem, they are considering converting all of North Park into undergraduate housing, which would greatly diminish the housing opportunities for graduate students.
We have drafted a petition to voice our opposition to this proposal. Please share this with the students of your program and encourage them to sign as well as to share their thoughts in the optional text field. Petitions are more powerful when we have reasons to share instead of just a list of names.
You can find the petition here:
The Graduate Student Council represents all graduate students from the School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, Thayer School of Engineering, and The Dartmouth Institute. The GSC consists of elected departmental representatives from these schools and includes non-voting representatives from the Tuck School of Business, the Geisel School of Medicine, and the Undergraduate Student Assembly.
The goal of the GSC is to nurture and enhance a sense of community for graduate students across all departments Dartmouth.
GSC general council meetings are open to all graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, administrators, guests, visitors, professors, and staff. Meetings are approximately an hour in duration but please arrive early if you have any questions, to socialize, and to some help yourself to food before the meeting is underway.
If you have any questions about the general meeting format, would like a copy of the upcoming agenda, or how to get involved, please contact the GSC Communications Chair.
