Comprised of students elected annually from each degree program, the Student Forum works to improve student life at the GSD and serves as a liaison between the student body and the school administration. Members of the Forum participate in the meetings of the Student Affairs Committee and meet weekly with Student Services to help foster a continuous dialogue between students and the administration. The Forum meets regularly with the Dean, the Visiting Committee and the Alumni Council to communicate students’ concerns. Members of the Forum represent the GSD on the university-wide Graduate Student Council and other ad-hoc administrative and student committees.
The Student Forum also has a great impact on students’ social lives, throwing the GSD’s biggest bashes and manages the Student Activity Fee. The Forum meets weekly with Student Services and has regular meetings open to all students. It’s a great way to feel connected and contribute your ideas—from how the plotters work, to how clean the bathrooms are, to fostering studio culture— Student Forum makes sure your voice is heard.
