The Graduate Students Association will hold elections for its leadership roles Wednesday to April 16.

Two of four positions are uncontested. A complete roster of the six candidates is listed below.

Richard Tran, GSA Election Board chair, said he hopes the election will serve as an opportunity for graduate students to come together and get more involved on campus.

He added he is confident the candidates will be able to address the needs of graduate students.

“I am very happy that we have a very diverse group of people running, both people with and without experience who will come together to make great decisions for our program,” Tran said.
