Contribute your time and talent in service to GSAS as a member of the Graduate School Alumni Association Council. The GSAA Council consists of 42 members committed to advancing the interests of GSAS students and alumni. Through biannual meetings, the Council develops outreach plans, considers student life activities, and nominates fellow alumni for GSAS’s highest alumni award, The Centennial Medal.

Council members serve three-year terms, renewable by a re-nomination process, and commit to attending two Council meetings in Cambridge in the fall and spring.

Nominations for Council

Nominate outstanding alumni to serve on the council by contacting the GSAA with an explanation of why candidates merit selection. Typically, members have achieved success or distinction in their careers and have made significant contributions through community service. Submissions are reviewed by the Nominations Committee of the GSAA Council, with terms beginning in July. Nominations are considered on a rolling basis, so there is no formal deadline, but terms start July 1 of each year.
