Facilities and Healthcare

About Us

The Facilities and Healthcare Committee is one of GSA's three Standing Committees.  We work on issues pertaining to graduate student housing, legal aid, gym access and usage, and healthcare. Our meetings take place directly after each GSA general assembly meeting.

You can read our meeting minutes here and recent proposals/reports here 

In large part due to advocacy by this committee, Associate Vice President for Administration Janet Lindner and Secretary and Vice President for Student Life Kim Goff-Crews have convened a Graduate & Professional Student Housing Committee! "The purpose of this committee is to advise the administration on housing issues, beginning with a review of existing housing, both on and off-campus, and to provide input into university strategic planning for graduate and professional student housing overall."
