Article II: Membership a) Membership in the Graduate Student Organization (GSO) shall consist of all University of Connecticut School of Social Work matriculated Master and Doctoral students who pay the student activity fee. All members are eligible to hold office, may attend Steering Committee meetings, submit and participate in petitions, and attend events sponsored by GSO and its affiliates. b) Membership of Executive Committee shall consist of the GSO Chair or Co-Chairs, the Secretary, and the Treasurer. c) Membership of the GSO Steering Committee shall consist of all Leaders of GSO Sub- Organizations, all Method Concentration Committee Representatives, all School Wide Committee Representatives, and the members of the GSO Executive Committee. d) Membership of GSO Sub-Organizations shall consist of the Sub-Organization Leader(s) and any matriculated Master and Doctoral students who wish to be involved with the Sub-Organization. e) Other GSO Participants may include, but are not limited to, non-degree students, SSW Faculty, SSW Staff, and members of the community. Participants are permitted to attend events and meetings sponsored by GSO affiliates; however, the main beneficiaries of these events should be matriculated Masters and Doctoral students. Article III: Mission a) The University of Connecticut School of Social Work Graduate Student Organization exists to create and strengthen a beneficial environment for its members, matriculated students. The GSO observes and celebrates diversity in all forms through educational and social programs, community service projects and advocacy opportunities. In accordance with the UConn School of Social Work s mission, our organization s function is to augment the students academic experience. In pursuit of this mission, GSO models its conduct in accordance with the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics. Article IV: Goals and Objectives a) To create community among students at the UConn School of Social Work. b) To serve as an advocate on behalf of the student body to the School s Administration. 1

2 c) To assist students with their professional development by raising awareness on issues affecting the social work profession. d) To maintain diverse representation within the GSO in meeting its mission. e) To manage and allocate student activity funds. Article V: Governance a) The GSO shall function as the official legislative and executive body of the student body of the Graduate School of Social Work of the University of Connecticut. Leadership and coordination of activities of the GSO shall be governed by a Steering Committee. Nonleader students may attend the steering committee meetings but will have no voting rights. b) According to the UConn School of Social Work Field Education Manual, students currently in field serving as designated student representatives on School committees, or who serve in leadership positions in student organization, are to be given time off from their field placements without having to make up the hours to attend those meetings. Students and field instructors are expected to ensure that attendance at any School event does not interfere with professional obligations at the placement. ( Field Education Manual, Page 10). c) Sub-Organizations and Method Concentration Committees of the GSO, here after referred to collectively as affiliates, are groups of students joined together by a common cause, interest, or purpose, or in the case of Method Concentration Committees, by their Method Concentration. Each affiliate receives funds that can be budgeted for specific educational and/or social events, guest speakers, food, etc. While participation in these affiliates may include faculty, staff, non-matriculated students, or community members, membership, including the control, operation, and responsibilities of the running of these affiliates, is made up and managed by matriculated Master and Doctoral students. All leaders must maintain and keep records of all events and planning done throughout the year in a binder. This is to ensure that incoming Chairs/Co-Chairs will have an understanding of the documented history of their group and its activities. Any affiliate that does not function with leadership representation for two semesters within one academic year will no longer be recognized as active by the GSO. d) School-Wide Committee Representatives on the GSO are students who represent the student body on various School of Social Work Administrative Committees. The Executive Committee and GSO Advisor are responsible for nominating and appointing students to serve on various school-wide committees. Students who have completed at least 1 year in the program are preferred for these positions. These committees are responsible for policy development, student affairs, etc. e) The leaders of the GSO shall be empowered to speak as the official voice of the GSO and of the student body, and to direct and organize the activities of the GSO. The Executive Committee and the Advisor of the GSO may appoint ad hoc committees to deal with specific issues or activities. The ad hoc committee will consist of members of the 2

3 Executive Committee and other matriculated students as advised by the Chair/Co-Chairs of GSO. f) The GSO shall meet as a body at least three times per semester during the academic year and additional meetings may be called as necessary. Action on any business before the GSO may be passed by vote of the majority of Steering Committee members. All meetings shall be conducted according to Robert s Rules of Order, Revised. Meetings shall be publicized at least two weeks before the scheduled meeting time. g) The GSO shall review all disbursement requests and consider the reasonableness of each request prior to approving. Consideration should be given to the benefit to the student body and other similar considerations. i. Allocation of funds shall occur as follows: $800 for each Sub-Organization and $600 for each Method Concentration Committee with the exception of Casework which shall receive $800 due to the size of their cohort. Doctoral Student Organization (DSO) funds shall be determined by the number of Doctoral students paying an activity fee during any given academic year. The remainder of funds shall be designated as the overall GSO. ii. If a GSO affiliate exhausts its funds during an academic year its leadership can submit a written request for additional funds to the GSO Executive Committee prior to March 1 st. This request must include a specific amount and the reason for the request. Affiliates cannot request in excess of $100 in additional funds per academic year. Approval of this request is contingent upon available funds in the GSO general budget. iii. Individuals who commit funds without prior approval by the GSO may be held personally responsible for payment of goods or services. The GSO will not pay for such expenses without proper organization approval. iv. Payment in advance for goods and services shall be prohibited. h) The Director of Student Services shall serve as Advisor to the GSO, and shall be assisted by other designated staff members as identified. i. The role of the GSO Advisor is to provide orientation to new student leaders; attend Executive Committee and Steering Committee meetings; ensure policies and procedures are followed; attend Sub-Organization and Method Concentration Committee meetings and events, as time permits; and to work closely with all GSO Leadership and Sub-Organization Faculty Advisors to fulfill the mission of each Sub-Organization and the GSO as a whole. ii. The DSO will be advised by the Doctoral Faculty Field Advisor, who will attend DSO meetings as needed. i) Sub-Organization Faculty Advisor Policy: i. All Sub-Organizations may have a Faculty Advisor. Sub-Organization Chair or Co-Chairs have the option of requesting a specific faculty member to serve as advisor for the academic year. The current Sub-Organization Chair/Co-Chairs, if graduating, may make a recommendation to the incoming Sub-Organization Chair/Co-Chairs to request a specific faculty member to serve as Faculty Advisor. Ultimately, it is the decision of the new Sub-Organization Chair/Co-Chairs to request a Faculty Advisor. 3

4 ii. If a Sub-Organization wishes to request a specific faculty member to serve as advisor, the Chair/Co-Chairs should first have a conversation with the faculty member. If the faculty member agrees, the Chair/Co-Chairs should submit a request in writing with the proposed faculty member s name to the GSO Advisor. The request for an advisor should be submitted no later than October, unless the Chair/Co-Chair position is not filled by October. The request will be submitted to the Dean s Office for review. The Chair/Co-Chairs will be notified of the decision within 10 days of submitting the written request. iii. The role of Faculty Advisor includes: A. To serve as a resource and provide consultation. This includes giving information on previous efforts made by the sub-organization, brainstorming ideas on programs and activities and identifying potential speakers. B. To help students identify strategies to engage students in their activities and programs. C. To assist with assessing feasibility of student initiatives. D. To address problems that may arise. iv. The Faculty Advisor and Chair/Co-Chairs should meet or communicate via at least once a month in order to keep communication lines open. v. If the Chair/Co-Chairs have concerns with their Faculty Advisor, they should first bring the issue to the attention of the Faculty Advisor. If the concerns are not resolved, they should be brought to the attention of the GSO Advisor, who will then consult with the Dean s Office. vi. Acting as a Faculty Advisor will be counted as service to the School. The faculty member will not receive course release or compensation for serving in this capacity. vii. The Faculty Advisor does not replace the role of the GSO Advisor, who continues to have administrative responsibilities for facilitating the work of Sub- Organizations. Both the Sub-Organization Chair/Co-Chairs and the Faculty Advisor should work closely with the GSO Advisor. viii. This shall serve as a guideline for the role of the Faculty Advisor. It is understood that decisions regarding Sub-Organization business should remain student driven. j) Method Concentration Committees shall work with their Method Concentration Committee Faculty Chair or their designee to provide input and guidance as sought by the leaders for their area. It is understood that decisions regarding Method Concentration Committee business should remain student driven. k) Additional Faculty and Staff Participation in Sub-Organizations and Method Concentration Committees: i. Faculty and Staff members may participate in GSO Sub-Organization and Method Concentration Committees meetings and events as invited, however the intended recipients of funds used are the matriculated Master and Doctoral Students (see Article II, Section e). It is understood that decisions regarding the business of these groups should remain student driven. 4
