The Board of Advisors works closely with the Alumni Engagement Working Group to connect current graduate students to alumni who were involved with the GSC while at MIT.
The GSC Board of Advisors (hereinafter referred to as “the Board”) will serve in a purely advisory capacity to the GSC leadership team, and will consist of past GSC leadership who have a deep understanding of the GSC and of MIT.
The Board will consist of up to six members, with each member serving a two year term. Appointments will be staggered so that up to three members are appointed every year. Board members will elect a chair from amongst themselves to serve for a period of one year. This chair shall be responsible for organizing meetings and coordinating between fellow Board members. The GSC Officers will serve as the main point of contact for the Board and will be required to report semesterly to the Board on their progress and goals.
New board members will be nominated by the GSC Executive Committee and presented to the Council at the April GCM of every year. Board members will be confirmed by the Council through a majority vote at the May GCM of each year. In the event a Board member resigns before the end of their term, the GSC Executive Committee may present a replacement to the Council, to be voted upon at a subsequent GCM.
A Board member may be removed by a unanimous vote from the remaining Board members.
