     A Resolution Expressing the Sense of the Graduate and Professional Student Senate During COVID-19 to Recognize and Support G&P Yale University Students

 

Whereas the Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS) represents the graduate and professional (G&P) student population at Yale University; and,

Whereas it is the mission of the GPSS to influence the policy, culture, and views of the University leadership by expressing the views of the student body to the administration and by issuing statements of our position to the media and administration; and,

Whereas since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down, students within various graduate and professional schools have come forth with requests and demands of their schools in support of G&P academic and professional development.

Therefore, be it resolved that GPSS supports the efforts of G&P students across the university during the COVID-19 pandemic and is in solidarity with the ongoing requests of G&P students.

Be it further resolved that GPSS recognizes the current pandemic has created unique student needs including, but not limited to emergency fund relief, extending university resources for the graduating class, extended funding requests, expanded healthcare for physical and mental health support.

Be it further resolved that we encourage the university to include G&P student input on decision-making within contingency planning committees on topics regarding student teaching, research, and academic policies. 

Be it further resolved that GPSS encourages the university administration to respond to student requests and provide financial and academic provisions as appropriate for the G&P community.

                                                                                                                                                                  GPS Senate

 

 

          The Senate has compiled a list of resources we feel are useful to G&P students during the  COVID-19 pandemic. Have a resource you'd like to add? Share it with us on our Google Form.
