1. Chancellor May’s “To Boldly Go” Initiative
2. UAW GSR Happy Hour 2/6
The union is having a happy hour for GSR’s specifically on Tuesday, February 6th from 5-7 pm at Sudwerk’s. The event is co-sponsored with the Women’s Resources and Research Center and the GSR working for the LGBTQ+ center on campus. Attendees will get free tacos and beer! The event is designed to bust some myths about our union, help you all learn more about an upcoming effort to unionize graduate student researchers in the UC system, as well as make sure you all are aware of your rights and what our union can do for you even if you are not TA-ing/AI-ing at this moment in time (since many of us graduate students go back and forth between GSR and TA positions during our time in our programs). We hope to see you there! Please spread the word to your peers and colleagues about the event. You can find an attached flyer to this email and the facebook event page here:
3. Join the Graduate Teaching Community
Have questions about filing taxes as a graduate student? The GSA is sponsoring a tax workshop on Thursday from 6-8pm in 1204. Meaghan Likes, CPA will be answering common questions related to graduate student taxes. Hope to see you there!
4. Apply now for Student Activism funds!
The Student Activism Fund is a source of funding for graduate student-initiated activism projects of significant interest or value to graduate students across campus. The GSA budget allocates $3,500 each year for all such projects; the amount offered to any one project is limited to $500*.
5. Food Access Resources
Several resources exist for students who are having difficulty affording healthy food.
You may be eligible for CalFresh, which can give up to $190/month to help with groceries.
Food is also available for students at the Pantry in lower Freeborn or through Fruit & Veggie Up – now located at the MU!
