GEU Structure


The Graduate Employees Union elects five Officers in the spring of each year:

  • President
  • Vice President for Organizing & Outreach
  • Vice President for Contract Negotiations and Grievances
  • Treasurer
  • President, Vice President for Organizing & Outreach, Vice President for Contract Negotiations and Grievances, Treasurer, and Information Officer

The Stewards Council consists of GEU members from all departments of the university and is responsible for organizing the union, planning events and actions, and approving union policies. Stewards are elected by members in their department and meet once a month. Members in each employing department may elect one steward for every fifteen members in the department. Stewards are the links from the academic departments to the union: they provide communication to their fellow graduate students from the union and relay information to their departments from the union.
