GRADUATE STUDENT SUPPORT PLAN
Whereas: Graduate education is an important component of NC State University’s core mission. Graduate Education is complex in nature due to the diverse academic colleges within the University. Therefore it is necessary and important to establish an equitable and sustainable plan to provide adequate support for graduate student training with in-state national and international student representation.
Whereas: The Faculty Tuition Remission Committee (FTRC) has with diligence considered proposed measures to address shortfalls in tuition remission funds, and in the process has uncovered apparent inequities, and general lack of consistency in the distribution of such funding across the respective colleges of the University,
Therefore: Be it resolved that the Faculty Senate of North Carolina State University fully endorses the recommendation of the FTRC in calling for a comprehensive review of the Graduate Student Support Plan (GSSP) prior to the implementation of any modifications to the current GSSP.
