Board of Directors
The GEA Board of Directors consists of 6 Lynch School of Education graduate student members who simultaneously serve as a Co-Chair for one of three committees within the GEA (Academic, Service & Diversity, and Student Life) as well as the graduate student representative from their department within the Lynch School. The Board of Directors works closely with the GEA Executive Board (President, VP of Communications, and VP of Operations) to plan, implement, and evaluate all GEA-related activities during the academic year.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
- Serve as co-chair on one of the three GEA Committees (Academic, Service & Diversity, or Student Life) and work to achieve the committee’s objectives as determined by the committee membership and the GEA Executive Board at the start of the academic year.
- Serve as a graduate student representative for your department within LSOE and facilitate communication between faculty (especially the department chair) and the GEA.
- Serve as a member of the Board of Directors by attending mandatory bi-weekly Board Meetings, collaborate with members of other committees to plan and execute events, and perform tasks assigned by the GEA Executive Board.
- Hold bi-weekly meetings with members of your committee (opposite Board Meetings) to communicate, plan, and execute committee objectives.
- Hold one (1) office hour each week. This office hour can be held at any time, Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 12 midnight when co-chairs are required to be physically present in the GEA Lounge working on GEA-related tasks.
- Co-chairs are expected to be present for ALL events their individual committee sponsors as personal schedule allows. If conflicts arise, co-chairs are expected to contact the GEA President well in advance of the event.
Each appointed program representative/committee co-chair will receive two (2) credits of tuition remission (1 credit allocated for the fall and spring semester) and an $800 stipend for serving on the GEA Board of Directors during the academic year. Please note that we may only provide this financial support to 1 program representative from each of the 6 LSOE graduate programs:

3 hours per week or 12 hours per month.
