Graduate Students in Communication (GSIC)

Graduate Students in Communication (GSIC) is an organization composed of the graduate students in the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications. Three students are elected each year to serve as executive officers (president, vice president, and secretary/treasurer). The executive officers plan graduate student events, assist with administration in the Bellisario College, and offer various academic and social opportunities to graduate students in the Bellisario College. Responsibilities of GSIC officers include, but are not limited to: acting as liaison between the student cohort and the faculty; assisting in the general operation of student offices in the James Building; organizing social events that allow sharing and collaboration of academic pursuits; providing opportunities for academic development through training workshops; striving to assist with conference preparation and travel funding; arranging and executing community and/or university service projects; and providing assistance with the open house and incoming student orientation.
