Summer GradCare Coverage

If you were a GSI or GSSA during the fall 2017 and winter 2018 semesters (even if you’re graduating) OR if you were a GSI or GSSA in winter 2018 and you will be a GSI or GSSA in fall 2018, you are guaranteed our zero premium GradCare coverage during the spring and summer months.  This should be automatic and is handled by department administration. However, if you believe you are not receiving summer coverage, please contact your department administration and umgeo@geo3550.org ASAP to have any errors corrected.


Get Involved with These Committees over the Summer

  • Platform Development Committee – GEO is starting to gear up for our next contract campaign and negotiation! Would you like to help develop the platform we will bring to the table? Email platformdevelopmentchair@geo3550.org to get involved.
  • Disability Working Group – GEO’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee is forming a working group this summer to address concerns around disability and accessibility at UM. We will focus on previously-identified problems with accommodation and access to learning environments, such as ASL-English interpreter access and web accessibility. General campus climate issues will also be central to this group’s work. Interested? Please contact mgherb@umich.edu or tsrice@umich.edu.
  • Solidarity and Political Action Committee (SPAC) This summer, SPAC will be wrapping up a few projects we would love your help with, including an accountability system, resources for precarious students, creating more educational material, and adding more solidarity stuff to the website. Additionally, we will be kicking off the “Electoral Information and Procedure Subcommittee” which will direct how we spend our energy in the upcoming 2018 elections! If you are interested in any of this work, or if you have any questions, please reach out to solidarity@geo3550.org.
