Brittany Bounds, graduate student council president, addresses the council Tuesday.

During the Graduate Student Council’s (GSC) biweekly meeting Tuesday, bylaws were updated to match the changes made to the GSC Constitution last meeting, which now allows GSC officers to be reelected.

The bylaws passed with a vote of 38-8 with 1 abstention.

Chris Lyons, co-chair of the GSC legislative affairs committee and plant pathology graduate student, proposed the changes made last meeting to the constitution as well as the updated bylaws that will take those changes one step further, eliminating term limits for officers.

Brittany Bounds, GSC president and history graduate student, said the changes to term limits will allow officers to take their ideas further by giving them more time to implement them. Bounds also said these changes will allow officers to gain valuable experience to further develop their leadership skills both inside and outside of the GSC.

Other topics touched on at the meeting were the upcoming writing of the GSC Bill of Rights, the proposal for changes to May graduations and a dissertation copyright proposal.

The next meeting will be held Feb. 18 in Koldus 144.
