The Graduate Student Government is an organization, sponsored by the Office of Graduate and Professional Education, which provides advocacy on behalf of and social and professional programming for graduate students at the University of Delaware. Every graduate student is represented in the GSG by a senator from his/her academic program, and every graduate student is welcome to participate in all GSG meetings and events. In fact, every graduate student is already a member of GSG! I encourage you to visit one of our meetings on the second Thursday of each month in 104 Gore Hall, or consider getting involved with program planning or advocacy on one of the GSG committees. Additionally, there are several unrepresented programs, which you can find out more about on our Senators page.
GSG has some upcoming events for the Spring 2017 semester:
Thursday, April 13: 7th Annual Graduate Students’ Forum – 8:30am – 5:30pm, with complimentary lunch & panel from 12-2pm, and reception 4-5:30pm. The theme this year is “Leaders of Engaged Citizenry: Graduate Student Research & Creative Works,” intended to highlight the broad value of graduate education to scholarly communities and society at large. Interdisciplinary discussions will be fostered by panels focused on various topics of broad significance, geared toward accessibility to the lay public. A reception and poster session will close off the day, with some finger food and a bar available. The registration, luncheon, reception, and gift are free of charge and open to the public, with a reservation. Reserve here.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if I can help you get involved with the GSG or if I can answer any questions or concerns you have.
