Want to have a more active role in shared governance at the Graduate Center or CUNY? Want your program to have access to funds via the DSC? Consider nominating fellow students or yourself for a position on the Doctoral and Graduate Students’ Council (DSC) of the Graduate Center! The nominations ballot for 2018-2019 elections of representatives remains open only a little while longer, until today, March 1 (at 11:59 pm) here:[]


You can see the list of all positions up for nomination, their descriptions, and duties, as well as eligibility requirements, at If you want to see who your program reps are this year–or if you have any representatives this year–you can find that information here:, Note that your program needs to have at least one representative to have access to program allocation $$ from the DSC. 


You can nominate other registered students and/or yourself!


If you find yourself unable to access nominations through the link above: any enrolled student may also make a nomination February 1- March 1 via email to After students are contacted about their nominations in March, the elections ballot will be open April 1- May 1.

Some FAQS:


1) “I can’t sign in”: If you have any trouble logging in to nominate people, please contact CCSA! One log-in trouble that may come up is with the password, which is first initial + last initial + birth year–if you have more than one last name, try the initial of the FIRST of your last names. 

2) “Can I nominate myself for more than one position” Yes! You can nominate yourselves and others for more than one position (for example, you can nominate yourself for at-large representative AND program representative position).

3) “Oops, I missed the nominations deadline of March 1, 11:59pm. Is it too late to be part of the election?” Fortunately, no–you can enter people during the election as “write-in” options.
