Already have a student organization and want to become GSA-affiliated?

Send an e-mail to Chris Rindosh, Coordinator for Student Organizations (crindosh@towson.edu), GSA (gsa@towson.edu), and Dr. Janet DeLany, Dean of Graduate Studies (jdelany@towson.edu),with an excel sheet with the names, e-mail addresses and TU ID numbers for your club’s members, a completed student organization’s constitution, and a completed Graduate Student Association Supplemental  Request Form. Please note the “Fund Management” section in the Funding Policy established by the GSA. 

After funding has been approved, meet with Jacqueline Stratmeyer, Student Government Association accounting associate (jstratmeyer@towson.edu), to set up an account for the group. Then meet with the GSA executive board to discuss the budget and how the funds will be used by the group for the upcoming year (gsa@towson.edu).
