Resolutions

One of the most important and influential means Graduate Student Senate has to express the student voice is the passing of resolutions. A resolution is a document expressing an opinion or a desire for change.

Anyone may write a resolution to be considered by GSS, but a current GSS member must sponsor it. After being introduced, a resolution is sent to a committee for research, discussion, possible revision, and a committee vote. If it passes committee, it is sent to the general body for a vote. Successfully passed resolutions are presented to the administration.

Why use Graduate Student Senate? Anyone can send an email or a letter to members of the UT Arlington administration. Resolutions are important for two reasons. One - the administration knows that a resolution has been researched by a team of students and voted on by elected student leaders. Two - whereas the administration is not required to act upon any GSS resolutions, it is supposed to provide a response to explain any decisions.
